. How much heat is needed to raise the temperature of 5 kg of silver from 20°C to 960°C?

To determine

How much heat is needed to raise the temperature of 5 kg of silver from 20°C to 960°C?

Explanation

Given info:

Mass of silver, m=5 kg

Initial temperature, T1=200C

Final temperature, T2=9600C

So, change in temperature, ΔT=9400C.

Formula used:

The amount of heat needed to transfer to a substance to cause a temperature change ΔT is given by

Q=CmΔT

Where C is the specific heat capacity of substance, here it is silver
