Calculate the amount of heat (in calories) required to raise the temperature of 200g of water from 20C to 50C. The specific heat of water is 1.00 cal/g.

I have done other spacific heat problems but on this one i don't know how to start...

  • Chemistry -

    Heat=mass*specific heat*changeinTemp
    =200g*1cal/gC*30C

  • Chemistry -

    6000 calories?

  • Chemistry -

    Go to the head of the class. Right.

  • Chemistry -
