    Can anyone help me with a chemistry ???

    When 47.5 J of heat are added to 13.2 g of a liquid, its temperature raises by 1.72 degree Celsius. What is the heat capacity of the liquid?

    What equations combining amount of heat, amount of substance, heat capacity and temperature change do you know?

    Look at the units of heat capacity. It's energy divided by mass and temperature. You have 3 numerical values provided in the problem statement. How would you combine them such that you achieve the units of heat capacity? Units tell you what to do.
