What is the specific heat (in cal) of fat with a degree change from 25 degrees Celsius to 35 degrees celsius? Density of fat = 0.94 g/cm^3
Use density to calculate mass, then
look in your problem for heat input, q.
q = mass fat x specific heat fat x delta T. Solve for specific heat fat.
The specific heat of toluene (C7H8), is 1.13 J/g•K. How many kJ of heat are necessary to raise the temperature of 61.0 g of toluene from 15.0 °C to 37.2 °C?
