    0.33 cal/g*C

    Explanation:

    The amount of heat required is determined from the formula

    q

    =

    m

    c

    Δ

    T

    ,

    where

    q

    is the amount of heat transferred

    m

    is the mass of the substance

    c

    is the specific heat capacity of the substance

    Δ

    T

    is the change in temperature

    q

    =

    1560 cal

    m

    =

    312 g

    Δ

    T

    =

    15 °C

    c

    =

    q

    m

    Δ

    T

    =

    1560 cal

    312 g * 15 °C

    =

    0.33 cal⋅g

    -1

    °C
