A 47kg sample of water absorbs 3.40×10^2kJ of heat.

Part A
If the water was initially at 21.5∘C, what is its final temperature?

  • chemistry -

    Easy!

    Using Q = mc(delta)
    where delta = difference between final and initial temperature

    Given m = 47 kg
    Q = 3.40 X 10^2 kJ
    Since heat is being absorbed into the system, this is an endothermic reaction.
    c for water is 4.2 kJ/kg.C

    Substituting Q,m,c & initial temperature of water into the equation.....
    The final temperature is 23.2 degree C
