What is the amount of energy of calories to heat 8.5g of water from 15 C to 36 C?

I think you take 8.5g x 21 degree C, but then I am stuck. Thank you

  1. amount of energy absorbed or released is given by
    Q = mc*(T2 - T1)
    where
    Q = heat (in Joules)
    m = mass (in grams)
    c = specific heat capacity (J/g-K)
    T = temperature (in Celsius or Kelvin)
    *note that Q is (+) if the object absorbed heat, and (-) if it released heat.
    for water, c = 4.184 J/g-K (you can find this in books or you can google this)
    substituting,
    Q = 8.5*4.184*(36-15)
    Q = ?
    now solve for Q. units in Joules.

    hope this helps~ :)
