Step 1

The specific heat can be defined as the amount of heat per unit mass that is needed to raise the temperature of given substance by one degree Celsius.

The specific heat of water is 4.186 joule/gram °C. This can be used to calculate the heat required to raise the temperature for given substance.

Step 2

The relation between heat change and specific heat is shown below; help_outlineImage Transcriptionclosem xc x AT Here q Amount of heat supplied m Mass of the substance c Substance's specific heat AT Change in temperature fullscreen
Step 3

Given:

q = 88.2 kJ = 88.2 x 103 J
m = 6.50 kg = 6500 g
c = 4.186 j/g °C
Tf = final temperature =...
