Expert Answer

Step 1

Specific heat capacity is 4.184 J/g.K.

Heat applied = ?

Initial temperature = 25oC = 298 K

Final temperature = 62 oC = 335 K

Mass of coffee = volume x density = 235 ml x 0.997 g/ml = 234.295 g

Heat required to increase the temperature can be can be calculated as follows...
