a block of aluminum is placed in 10.0g of water. the initial temperature of the water is 22.0 degrees celcious and its final temperature is 27.0 degrees celcious. what is the amount of heat released by the block of aluminum in calories if it had an initial temperature of 48.0 degrees celsius? aluminum has a specific heat of .897J/degrees celsius
Note the correct spelling of celsius.
q = mass Al x specific heat Al x (Tfinal-Tinitial)
