The specific heat capacity of platinum is 0.032 cal/g·K. How to calculate the heat, in joules, necessary to raise the temperature of a sample of platinum weighing 20.0 g from 15.0 Celsius to 65.0 Celsius?
So, in order to get from calories per g Kelvin to Joules per g Kelvin you must use a conversion factor
The relationship between heat and temperature change is expressed mathematically through this equation
Notice how little energy is needed to raise the temperature of a
