# Question #0c3b6

##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

First, it is necessary to make sure the copper is not undergoing any phase changes during the heating process. To check this, look at the melting point of copper: 1084.62 °C.

Since both the final and initial temperatures are below the melting point of copper, the copper will remain solid throughout the process, and it is not necessary to calculate any heat of fusion.

Next, the following equation can be used to solve for the amount of heat required to elevate the temperature of the copper:

Where

Finally, simply plug the values into the equation and solve for

**Note:** It is not necessary to convert to Kelvin since the *difference* in temperature is the same as it is in Celsius.
