# How much energy is required to raise the temperature of 3 g of silver from 15°C to 20°C?

Mar 15, 2017

The energy is $= 3.525 J$

#### Explanation:

The specific heat of silver is $s = 0.235 k J k {g}^{-} 1 {K}^{-} 1$

The mass is $m = 0.003 k g$

Delta T=20-15=5º

Energy, $E = m s \Delta T = 0.003 \cdot 0.235 \cdot 5 = 0.003525 k J = 3.525 J$
