If 100. J of heat energy is applied to a 25-g sample of mercury, by how many degrees will the temperature of the sample of mercury increase? (See Table 10.1.)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The increase in temperature of the mercury should be calculated.

Concept Introduction:

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

It is mathematically represented as follows:

Q=msΔT

Here, Q is heat, m is mass, s is specific heat capacity and ΔT is change in temperature.

Explanation

Given Information:

The heat energy applied to the mercury sample is 100 J and the mass of mercury is 25 g.

Calculation:

From table 10.1, the specific heat capacity of mercury is 0.14 J/g C

The specific heat capacity can be calculated using the following equation:

Q=msΔT

On rearranging,

ΔT=Qms<
