a container has the dimensions of 2.5 m x50 cm x60 mm. It is filled with water at 0.0 degrees celsius,how many kilocalories will be necessary to heat the water to boiling point?
volume = 250 cm x 50 cm x 6 cm = 75,000 cc = 75,000 grams if the density of water is 1.0 g/cc.
q = mass H2O x specific heat H2O x (Tfinal-Tinitial).
units of q will depend upon what you substitute for specific heat.
