mistake on specfic heat quiz corrected

For your information we just directed a specific heat question.

The new question is 40 pounds of water from 60 to 210 F?

The old question mistake was that we were multiplying times 8.33 when we already had pounds. The reason we changed 60 to 500 260 to 210F because then you have to add in 970.3 the specific heat of steam after 212 is .5. So to avoid all the confusion were just going to keep it under 212F
