A swimming pool, 20.0 m 12.5 m, is filled with water to a depth of 3.73 m. If the initial temperature of the water is 17.7°C, how much heat must be added to the water to raise its temperature to 28.7°C? Assume that the density of water is 1.000 g/mL.

    First you want to calculate the volume of the pool, then convert to mL. The easy way to do that is to change the dimensions to cm before you start, then L x W x depth = volume. Using density convert to grams.
    q = mass water x specific heat water x (Tfinal-Tinitial).
