How much heat is required to raise the temperature of 250.0 g of mercury 52ºC? The specific heat of mercury is 0.14 J/(gºC).
Heat required = M * C * (delta T)
= (Mass)*(Specific heat)*(temperature change)
= 250 * 0.14 * 52 = 1820 Joules.
Thank you so much! You helped me get an A! :D
how did u got 0.14?
0.14 is the specific heat of mercury
