# Question 29480

Jun 30, 2017

108 J

#### Explanation:

Use the formula q=mCΔT#

q = heat absorbed or released, in joules (J)
m = mass
C = specific heat capacity
ΔT = change in temperature

Plug known values into the formula.

$q = 10.6 \left(.82\right) \left(34.7 - 22.3\right)$
$q = 10.6 \left(.82\right) \left(12.4\right)$
$q = 107.7808$

The answer, expressed in 3 significant figures, is 108 joules of energy absorbed.

Hope this helps!
