The specific heat capacity of copper is 0.092 calories per gram per degree Celsius. How much heat is required to raise the temperature of a 5 g piece of copper from 0°C to 80°C?
Have you ever seen this formula?
Heat input = M C *(delta T)
=(mass)(specific heat)(temperature rise)
Plug in the numbers and crank away.
Your answer will be in calories if you use the units above.
