A soft drink can contains about 0.20 kg of liquid at 5 oC. Drinking this liquid can
actually consume some of the fat in the body, since energy is needed to warm the water
to body temperature (37 oC). How many kcal should the drink have so that it is in perfect
balance with the heat needed to warm the liquid.

  • Physics -

    heat=mass*specificheatwater*deltatemp
    solve for heat in kcal
