What is the temperature change in 224 g of water upon the absorption of 55 kJ of heat, the specific heat of water is 4.18 J/g °C?
To obtain the change in temperature, let's use the equation below:
In this question, heat has units of kJ, which does not match up with the units given in the image above. So what we can do first is convert kJ to J by multiplying that value of
Here are the variables that we know:
All we have to do is rearrange the equation to solve for
Now, we just plug in the known values:
