Textbook Problem

A swimming pool, 10.0 in by 4.0 m, is filled with water to a depth of 3.0 m at a temperature of 20.2 °C. How much energy is required to raise the temperature of the water to 24.6 °C?

Interpretation Introduction


The heat required 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:


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


Given Information:

The length, width and depth of swimming pool is 10.0 m, 4.0 m and 3.0 m respectively. The initial temperature of water is 20.2 C and final temperature is 24.6 C


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:




To calculate the heat required, first calculate the mass of water.

It is related to density as follows:


The volume of water will be equal to the volume of the swimming pool. It is calculated as follows:


Here, l is length, w is width and d is depth.

Putting the values,

V=(10.0 m)(4.0 m)(3
