# How many grams of silver are needed to absorb 1.00 kJ of energy changing the temperature from 33.0°C to 41.8°C?

##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

To solve this, we use the formula for heat absorption,

*specific heat capacity* of the material, in joules per gram °C. This is the amount of energy it takes for one gram of this substance to heat up by 1K.

We then rearrange this equation making

The question gives us the values

Now the only remaining value we need is

I found 3 sources: hyperphysics, periodictable.com, and ptable.com.

These put the value at

Now we substitute into the equation:

If you have been given a value for the specific heat capacity of silver which is not
