1. to get the heat released or absorbed,
Q = mc(T2-T1)
where
m = mass of substance (units in g)
c = specific heat capacity (units in J/g-K)
T2 = final temperature
T1 = initial temperature
*note: units of temp doesn't matter if it's in degree Celsius or Kelvin, as long as T1 and T2 have the same units (since it's difference in temperature or delta,T)
**note: if Q is (-), heat is released and if (+), heat is absorbed

for water, c = 4.184 J/g-K
substituting,
40 * 10^3 = m*(4.184)*(100 - 25)
40000/(4.184)(75) = m
m = 127.47 g

hope this helps~ :)
