The specific heat capacity of copper is 0.092 calories per gram per degree Celsius. How much heat is required to raise the temperature of a 5 g piece of copper from 0°C to 80°C?

  • physics -

    Have you ever seen this formula?

    Heat input = M C *(delta T)
    which means:
    =(mass)(specific heat)(temperature rise)

    Plug in the numbers and crank away.

    Your answer will be in calories if you use the units above.
