How much heat is required to warm 100.0 g water from 31.8 degrees Celcius to 67.5 degrees Celcius? The specific heat capacity of water is 4.184 J/g K


Expert Answer

Step 1

The heat required is calculated as,

= mCAT
m 100 g
T1 31.8 °C
304.8 K
67.5 °C 340.5 K
C 4.184 J/g-K

= mCAT m 100 g T1 31.8 °C 304.8 K T2 67.5 °C 340.5 K C 4.184 J/g-K

Step 2

Substituting, th...

Qm x C x (T2- Ti)
Q 100 g x 4.184 J/g-K x (340.5 -304.8) K
Q 14936.88 J
Q 14.936 kJ
