Ninety kilojoules of heat were added to a 2.0-kg piece of wood whose temperture then rose from 20 degrees Celsius to 48 degrees Celcius. What was the specific heat of the wood?

Physical Science
The specific heat of granite is 0.80 kJ/kg*Celsius. If 1.6 MJ of heat are added to a 100-kg granite of statue of James Prescott Joule that is origanlly at 18 degrees Celsius, what is the final temperture of the statue? No one has been able to answer this one!!

Tempertaures in both Celsius and Fahrenheit scales can be negative. Why is a negative tempertaure impossible on the absolute scale?

Physical Science
What are the equivalents of 0 K, 0 degrees Celsius, and 0 degrees F in the other tempertaure scales?
