If a gram of water at sea level is heated from 37 degrees Celsius to 101 degrees. How much heat would be absorbed by the water?
q = mass x specific heat x (Tfinal-Tinitial)
4284.416. but what unit would it be in?
The mass H2O is in grams in the problem. What unit did you use for specific heat? If calories/gram then q is in calories. If in joules/gram then q is in joules.
