Answer:

#902# #J#

Explanation:

Use the equation #Q=mcdeltaT#

Where #Q=#heat flow, #m=#mass, #c=#specifc heat capacity of #Al# and #deltaT=#change in temperature

Just looking up the specific heat capcity of aluminum off google, which is #0.902# #J/(g*C)#

Sub values in with their correct units (the change in the kelvin scale is the same in celsius)

#Q=(500g)*0.902(J/(g*C))*(2# celsius)

#Q=902# #J#
