A student heats 84.17 mL of water to 95.27°C using a hot plate. The heated water is added to a calorimeter containing 73.92 mL of cold water. The water temperature in the calorimeter rises from 2.15°C to 36.10°C.The specific heat capacity of water is 4.184 J/g*°C and the density of water is 1.00 g/mL.

Assuming that heat was transferred from the hot water to the cold water and the calorimeter, determine the heat capacity of the calorimeter.

Heat capacity of calorimeter = _________ J/°C
