Suppose that the microwave radiation has a wavelength of 10.8 cm. How many photons are required to heat 215 mL of coffee from 25.0 ^\circ \rm C to 62.0 ^\circ \rm C? Assume that the coffee has the same density, 0.997 g/mL, and specific heat capacity, 4.184 \rm J/(g\cdot K), as water over this temperature range.

ASSUMING that ^\circ \rm C to be degrees C, then,

E of one photon = hc/wavelength with wavelength in m.

Energy needed to heat the water is

mass H2O x specific heat H2O x (Tfinal-Tinitial).

Set up a ratio and proportion to calculate the number of photons needed. Post your work if you get stuck and please don't use symbols without identifying them.
