A 10 lb. frozen boneless roast needs to be thawed and baked to a temperature of 200 degrees F.

The storage freezer maintains a temperature of -10 degrees F.

Pork changes from solid to a thawed state at 30 degrees F and has the following properties:

Heat Capacity "c" (frozen) = 0.50 BTU/(lb x F degrees)

"c" thawed = 1.2 BTU/(lb. x F degrees)

Heat of fusion (hf) = 125 BTU/lb.

How many BTUs does it take to bring the roast to a tasty 200 degrees F?

q1 is heat from -10 to 30

q1 = mass x specific heat of frozen x (Tfinal-Tinitial)

q2 = heat at 30 to thaw at 30.

q2 = mass x heat fusion

q3 = heat from 30 to 200

q3 = mass x specific heat of thawed x (Tfinal-Tinitial)

Total heat = q1 + q2 + q3

- Science - BTUs Please help -
**DrBob222**, Monday, September 3, 2012 at 2:40pmAll you need to do is to substitute the numbers and solve for q1, q2, and q3. There isn't anything vague about it.

q1 = 10 lbs x 0.5 BTU/lb*F x 40F = ?BTU (note:Tfinal-Tinitial) = 30F-(-10F) = 40F

q2 = 10 lbs x 125 BTU/lb = ? BTU

etc.
