I think you take 8.5g x 21 degree C, but then I am stuck. Thank you

**Jai**, Saturday, September 10, 2011 at 10:50amamount of energy absorbed or released is given by

Q = mc*(T2 - T1)

where

Q = heat (in Joules)

m = mass (in grams)

c = specific heat capacity (J/g-K)

T = temperature (in Celsius or Kelvin)

*note that Q is (+) if the object absorbed heat, and (-) if it released heat.

for water, c = 4.184 J/g-K (you can find this in books or you can google this)

substituting,

Q = 8.5*4.184*(36-15)

Q = ?

now solve for Q. units in Joules.

hope this helps~ :)
