The heat absorbed is

#### Explanation:

The heat absorbed is

The mass is

The specific heat of copper is

The change in temperature is

Therefore,

**Here are all informations that we have :**

- Mass of copper(m)
#=5.82g# - Specific Heat Capacity (I will just name it
**SHC**) of copper#=0.385 J(g°C)^-1# #rarr# simpler way to write 0.385 J/g°C - Change in temperature (
#DeltaC# )#=328.3°C-21.5°C=306.8°C#

**Then we start**

Firstly the formula,

**SHC**

**Then we replace the values and calculate it**

**Therefore, heat absorbed**

**(I put the answer at 3 significant figures (s.f) but for further calculations use the first value obtained)**
