WILL MEDAL AND FAN
The formula Q = MCT where Q = heat flow, M = mass, C = specific heat, and T = change of temperature is used to calculate heat flow. Solve this formula for T.
T = Q – MC
T = Q + MC
T = QMC
T = Q divided by the quantity M times C

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\(Q = MCT\) you want: \(T = something\) so you're gonna have to start dividing each side by something, right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so do it!! divide each side by something that gets you T = [the answer] :p

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no :( \(Q = MCT\) \(\frac{Q}{T} = \frac{MCT}{T} = \frac{MC}{1} = MC\) not that helpful, is it? you could try \(\frac{Q}{M} = \frac{MCT}{M} = \frac{CT}{1} = CT\) and do something very similar again

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1" just a whole bunch of letters" the answer is supposed to be a whole bunch of letters :p and algebra is a whole bunch of letters too it's not easy so don't worry about it  but i cannot just do it for you. someone else might, or someone else might be better at explaining. i'd say go back and look at the bunch of letters and see where we got to just by doing the same thing to each side of the equals sign.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2we can start from the suggestion of @IrishBoy123 so we can write: \[\Large \frac{Q}{M} = CT\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2now if we divide both sides of that above equation, by C, we get: \[\Large \frac{Q}{{MC}} = \frac{{CT}}{C}\] please simplify @briannam568

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1on the RHS, you have C on the top and bottom of the fraction. what to do?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you cross it out, since it is canceled out, right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1^Right \[\large \frac{Q}{MC} = \frac{\cancel{C}T}{\cancel{C}}\] So what do you have left?
