Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the heat (Q) required to raise the temp of a substance is:\[Q = m*C{_p}* \Delta T\] where m is the mass of the object (25.0g in this case), Cp is the specific heat capacity of the substance (for water Cp = 1.00cal/gC, or 4.18J/gC(, and Dt is the change in temp. You'll have to solve this twice, once with the Cp in calories, and once with the Cp in joules.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i only have a question if you don't mind helping me. i will be able to apply this to future problems. how can i figure out the different varations of that forumla you gave me?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0like in this example they ask for the J and Cal. later on they will ask me for the mass or the change in temp maybe. how can i flip stuff around?
