Work Step by Step

(a) We can find the heat capacity as $heat\space capacity =\frac{2520}{15}$ $heat\space capacity =168\frac{J}{K}$ (b) We know that $Q=mc\Delta T$ This can be rearranged as: $c=\frac{Q}{m\Delta T}$ We plug in the known values to obtain: $c=\frac{2520}{(0.350)(15)}$ $c=480\frac{J}{Kg\space C}$
