Q. A) Assuming that the Styrofoam absorbs a negligibly small amount of heat and that no heat was lost to the surroundings, what is the specific heat of the metal? B) Which is more useful for storing heat, this metal or an equal weight of water? Explain. C) What if the heat absorbed by the Styrofoam actually is not negligible. How would the specific heat you calculated in part (a) be in error? Would it be too large, too small, or still correct?
