In the laboratory a "coffee cup" calorimeter, or constant pressure calorimeter, is frequently used to determine the specific heat of a solid, or to measure the energy of a solution phase reaction.

A student heats 60.99 grams of tungsten to 99.26 °C and then drops it into a cup containing 75.88 grams of water at 21.71 °C. She measures the final temperature to be 23.58 °C.

The heat capacity of the calorimeter (sometimes referred to as the calorimeter constant) was determined in a separate experiment to be 1.53 J/°C.

Assuming that no heat is lost to the surroundings calculate the specific heat of tungsten.

What is Specific Heat (W) = ? J/g°C.
