Homework Help: physics

Posted by Bruce on Monday, July 23, 2012 at 11:11pm.

The label on a soft drink states that 11 fl. oz (325 g) provides 285 kcal. The drink is cooled to 12.0°C before it is consumed. It then reaches body temperature of 37°C. Find the net energy content of the drink. (Hint: You can treat the soft drink as being identical to water in terms of heat capacity.)

I'm not sure how 285 kcal works into solving this, or how to get started. Thank you for any help!
