Thermal Capacity

Thermal Capacity problem 28

We are heating two bodies. The first is made of iron and the second of aluminium. The masses of both bodies are equal. What should be the ratio of the heat flow rate (power) of the bodies in order for them to heat up at the same rate? This means that they will have the same temperature change in the same observed time.

The specific heat of iron is and that of aluminium is .
