What is the specific heat (in cal) of fat with a degree change from 25 degrees Celsius to 35 degrees celsius? Density of fat = 0.94 g/cm^3

  • Chemistry -

    Use density to calculate mass, then
    look in your problem for heat input, q.
    q = mass fat x specific heat fat x delta T. Solve for specific heat fat.
