So I'm looking to calculate the time required to raise the temperature of a piece of lead. What I know so far: Mass of metal: 4 grams(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Initial temperature: 250 degrees Celsius

Final temperature: 350 degrees Celsius

Specific heat of lead: 0.13 kj/kg

I'm very new to thermodynamics and don't know if this will be a simple equation or a complex one, but my current math understanding rests in pre-calculus. If there are any missing variables let me know, but I'd like to figure out how long it would take to heat up the mass of lead (I know it will go through a phase change) at a given temperature. Any help is greatly appreciated.
