In lab, Will burns a 0.6 g peanut beneath 48 g of water, which increases in temperature from 22 degree C to 55 degree C. The amount of heat absorbed by the water can be found with the equation Q =cm \Delta T, where Q is the amount of heat, c the specific heat of water, m the mass of water, and \Delta T the change in the water's temperature.
Assuming that 38 % of the heat released makes its way to the water, find the food value of the peanut.
