Calculate how much heat is required to bring 113 g of water from a temperature of 26.3°C to a temperature of 100°C. The specific heat of water is 4186 J/kg∙°C.

The specific heat tells you the amount of heat per unit mass required to raise the temperature by one degree C.

So we can calculate the amount of heat energy Q required by the formula:

Q = c m T

Where c is the specific heat, m is the mass, T the required temperature. Here:

Q = 4186J/kg∙°C * 0.113kg * 26.3°C (make sure all the units match - mass should be in kg to match the heat capacity unit!)

12440.3734J


Hope this was helpful!
