You asked a number of questions that all involve the same basic equation:

q = m c Delta T

q is the heat energy gained or lost

m is the mass

c is the specific heat of the substance

Delta T is the temperature change, equal to Tfinal - Tinitial

One of your questions has been answered using this equation. In all cases, you are provided with all values except one. Plug in what you have and solve for the unknown quantity. You should be able to figure out how to do these.

(50.0 J) / (5.00 g) / (6.00°C) = 1.67 J/g·°C
