How much energy is needed to heat and melt 3.0 kg of copper initially at 83°C?

Be mindful of significant figure rules for both multiplication and addition

  • Physicis -

    melting point of copper = 1083.0 °C
    heat capacity of copper = .39 kJ/kg-K
    heat of fusion of copper = 207 kJ/kg
    so to warm it up
    Qin = .39 kJ/kgK(1083-83)K(3kg) = 1170 kJ
    then to melt it
    Qin = 207kJ/kg (3 kg) = 621 kJ
    total Qin = 1791 kJ or 179,100 J
