# How many grams of water would require 2200 joules of heat to raise its temperature from 34°C to 100°C?

## The specific heat of water is 4.18 J/g C.

Approximately $8.0 g$ of water.

#### Explanation:

$q = m {C}_{s} \Delta T$

Never forget that!

2200 = m* (4.18J)/(g*°C) * 66°C
$\therefore m \approx 8.0 g$
