Calculate the amount of energy required (in joules) to heat 2.5 kg of water from 18.5 °C to 55.0 °C.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The heat required in calories to raise the temperature of water 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 water is 2.5 kg, initial temperature is 18.5 C and final temperature is 55.0 C

Calculation:

From table 10.1, the specific heat capacity of water (liquid) is 4.184 J/g C

The heat required can be calculated using the following equation:

Q=msΔT

Or,

Q=ms(T2T1)

On putting the values,

Q=(2
