How do you convert energy into to joules (can you please give me an example with showing me your i.e how you did it, in full detail)
How do you find specific heat numbers?


Your questions beg for amplification. Please expand. Energy is measured in joules (IN SI), what do you mean convert energy into joules? How does one find specific heat numbers? It depends on what is given. Please expand these questions.


The qeustion asked is Suppose you use 135 calories of energy to perform a task, how many joules have you used? See, I don't want the answer, just the steps leading me up to the answer, like how to figure this problem out wiht out using a coverting system.

The other question is figured out, you know the one about specific heat, it was in my book all along.
