A 500g aluminum pot containing 250mL of water in the pot increases from 13.2 °C to 89.1 °C. Calculated the heat absorbed by the pot and water.

I don't know the official approach to this question, somebody help!

• Science -

Heatabsorbed= masspot*cpot*deltaTemp+masswater*cwater*deltatemp

That is the official way.
