  1. The heat capacity of copper metal is 0.38 J/goC.  Assume you had a 25 g cube of  

copper at 25.0oC.  What would the final temperature of the copper be (in oC) if it absorbed 150 J of heat?

Let's call q the heat that is transferred, DT the change in temperature, C the heat capacity and m the mass of the copper cube

We have the following relationship :

q=DT*C*m so DT=q/(C*m)

Numerically DT= 150/(0,38*25)=15,8 °C
