## Heat question!??the amount of heat gained or lost by a substance is equal to

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

the amount of heat gained or lost by a substance is equal to the product of its______ times the change in__________ times its__________

2. Relevant equations
none that i know of

3. The attempt at a solution
I dont know the first blank or the third, but is the second heat?
 Recognitions: Gold Member Science Advisor Staff Emeritus The second is not heat. Have you been given any equations in your classes when you've been talking about calorimetry? If not I suggest you look up calorimetry on google. You're bound to find the answer then.
 i looked it up on google and still didnt find the answer..

Really? The first hit when I look up calorimetry has the equation you need.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calorimetry
 so the answer is energy, mass, and specific heat?
 You still need this part: the change in__________ Not "energy." The heat IS energy.
 i dont know what that part is then
 change in temperature
