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

    The specific heat of copper metal is 0.385 J/g ·°C. How many joules of heat are necessary to raise the temperature of a 1.25 g block of copper from 37.6°C to 96.2°C?

    2. Relevant equations

    g x g / mm

    3. The attempt at a solution

    1.25 g x 1 g / 63.546 mm = .01967 mol
