What quantity of heat energy would have to be applied to a 25.1 -g block of iron in order to raise the temperature of the iron sample by 17.5 °C? (See Table 10.1.)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The heat required to raise the temperature of sample of iron 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 mass of iron is 25.1 g and the increase in the temperature of iron sample is 17.5 C

Calculation:

From table 10.1, the specific heat capacity of iron is 0.45 J/g C

The heat required can be calculated using the following equation:

Q=msΔ
