if the specifc heat of iron = 0.46J/g C,how much heat is needed to warm 50g of iron from 20C to 100C
 I do not know how to make the celcius o above the temperature number
my anwswer
Q = Mx(delta)TxC
Q=50gx80Cx0.46J/gC
Q = 1840 Joules
Delta = the triangle I do not know how to make that on the computer

I don't know how to make the delta on the computer either. I usually write as you did. I note that some students use DH for delta H, DT for delta T, DS for delta S, etc.
You answer of 1840 Joules is correct. Good work.
