1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data How much heat (calories) is required to raise the temperature of 20 g water from 15oC to 95oC? The specific heat capacity of water is 1.0 cal/g*oC. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution 95-15 = 80oC 80oC *30 g = 2400 cal. Is that basically what you have to do? Or is there a more formal equation to use?
