I tried making the change of heat of the substance equal to change of heat of wate, but that didnt give me the right awnser, I know this because it is a multiple choice awnser. I would really appreciate help on this. Thxs before hand.

I got 2.16...

I did:

(.02 kg)(68*C)c=(.1 kg)(1)(7*C)

and got c= .5147

(.02 kg)(68*C)c=(.1 kg)(1)(7*C)

and got c= .5147

How did your get 2.16?

you got the answer in calories/(K*kg) multiply it by the specific heat of water in KJ

My answer is "A".Post your work.

That "1" in the formula for heat absorbed by water.It's 1 calory.It should be in [itex] KJ Kg^{-1}K^{-1} [/itex]

For the specific heat of water, use 4.19kJ/(K*kg) instead of 1 calorie/(K*kg)

- #14

So its

(.02 kg)(68*C)c=(.1)(7*C)(1 ?)

what is the specific heat measured in, isn't cal/g*C?

(.02 kg)(68*C)c=(.1)(7*C)(1 ?)

what is the specific heat measured in, isn't cal/g*C?

If you actually read between the line... you would notice that we've actually told you how to do it...

Dextercioby, should we consider helping someone this rude?

Okay,u did it fine,but put wrong units.If u put instead of calories [itex] KJ Kg^{-1}K^{-1} [/itex],your answer will coincide with the one at point "a".

Use the 4.19 in the place of 1.... since that is the correct unit not 1 calorie/(K*kg)

Yes,it's just that u need to express it in KJ/Kg*C (or Kelvin,they are the same thing,just scaling is different).

I c how, 1 cal/g*C= 4.184 J/kg*C, correct?

Oops, 4.184 is already in KJ, I just noticed, that 1 cal/g*C=4184 J/kg*C. Thats whats started this whole question.

Well thxs for all the help, and again I didn't mean to be rude.

but even still, it ask for the awnser in kilojoules. Wouldnt I multiply it by 1000?

nahh... 1 calorie = 4.184 J.... so multiply the answer by 4.184 and see what you get...

Yes u would have to multiply it.Else your answer would be in J/Kg*C instead of KJ/Kg*C

Daniel.

first of all Its 4.184J/g*K(orC)

and if you convert it to 4.184kJ/kg*K(orC)

you don't need to multiply by anything. so thus... only need to muliply by 4.184

I see your change... well then you will have to divide by 1000 and multiply by 4184 to your original answer of 0.516
