What is the heat absorbed by #"27 g"# of water that increases in temperature by #58^@ "C"#? Assume #c = "4.184 J/g"^@ "C"# for water in this temperature range.

1 Answer

Answer:

#Q = "6600 Joules"#

Explanation:

The heat #Q# for a given mass #m# of water with specific heat capacity #c = "4.184 J/g"^@ "C"# that increases in temperature by #58^@ "C"# is given by:

#Q = mcDeltaT#

#= ("27 g") cdot ("4.184 J"//"g"^@"C")(58^@"C") = "6552 J"#

#~~# #"6600 J"#
