# The specific heat of copper is 0.385 J/g * °C. How would you calculate the amount of heat needed to raise the temperature of 0.75 g of copper from 7°C to 29°C?

The amount of heat is $= 6.35 J$

#### Explanation:

We apply the formula

$q = m C \Delta T$

mass $m = 0.75 g$

Specific heat of copper C=0.385J g^-1 ºC^-1

Temperature change DeltaT=29-7=22ºC

So,

Amount of heat $q = 0.75 \cdot 0.385 \cdot 22 J$

$q = 6.3525 J$
