You have 53 g of aluminum at25 degrees C.
How much heat must be added to raise its
temperature to 139 degrees C? Assume the specific
heat of aluminum is 903 J/kg · degrees C.
Answer in units of J

chemistry 
annabel
q=m*c*change of t
m=mass
c= specific heat
change of t= final temp initial temp
fill in these with your numbers and you should get the answer

please help
is it supposed to be a really high number?

sorry convert your 53 grams to kg. because your specific heat capacity is in J per kg
this should change your answer

right. or change specific heat to 0.903 J/g.
