The change in temperature is ${89}^{\circ} \text{C}$.

#### Explanation:

The equation to use is:

$Q = m \cdot c \cdot \Delta T$,

where Q is the energy in Joules that is lost or gained, $m$ is mass, $c$ is specific heat, and $\Delta T$ is change in temperature.

Solution
Rearrange the equation to isolate $\Delta T$. Substitute the given values into the equation and solve.

$\Delta T = \frac{Q}{m \cdot c}$

DeltaT=(9612color(red)cancel(color(black)"J"))/(120color(red)cancel(color(black)("g"))xx0.899color(red)cancel(color(black)("J"))/(color(red)cancel(color(black)("g"))""^@"C"))="89"^@"C"# (rounded to two significant figures)
