q = mass*specific heat water*(Tfinal-Tinitial) = ??.
mass is 32.0 g
Tfinal = 80.0
Tinitial = 25.0
You need to look up the specific heat of water and plug in the numbers. Solve for q. Post your work if you get stuck.


so does q equal 1760

what are the units?

q could be in calories, ergs, joules, kilojoules, BTU, or twenty other units.

I get about 7.3kJoules.

your 1760g*C somehow missed the specific heat multiplication.
