Solve the following example.

Two substances A and B have specific heats c and 2 c respectively. If A and B are given Q and 4Q amounts of heat respectively, the change  in their temperatures is the same. If the mass of A is m, what is the mass of B?


Let the mass of B M.
Let the change in temperature be T for both the bodies, A and B.
The amount of heat in a body is given as 

Q = m × c × Δ T

For body A,

Q=m × c ×

`=> "T" = "Q"/("mc")`    ....(i)

For body B,

4Q=M × 2c ×

`=> "M" = (4"Q")/(2"c" xx "T")`

From (i) , T = `"Q"/("mc")`

`=> "M" = (4Q)/(2"c" xx "Q"/("mc")) = 2"m"`

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
