Answer to Question #1480 in Molecular Physics | Thermodynamics for Jake
How many calories of heat does it take to raise 500g of water from 20˚ C to 30˚ C? The specific Heat of water is 1.0 Calorie/gram˚C. Round the answer to the nearest whole number please!
The heat can be calculated by the following expression:
Q = ClmΔT = 1*500*(30-20) = 5000 Calories = 5kCal.
