Answer:

#300"J"# of energy.

Explanation:

The formula for specific heat is:

#E=mctheta#, where:

#E# is the energy needed in joules,

#m# is the mass in kilograms,

#c# is the specific heat,

#theta# is the change in temperature, Celsius of Kelvin doesn't matter.

Here,

#m=0.125"kg"#

#c=480"J/kg"^@"C"#

#theta=5^@"C"#, and inputting:

#E=0.125*480*5#

#E=300"J"# of energy is needed.
