4000J of heat energy are added to 400 grams of water at 20 degrees celcius. What is the resulting temperature of the water?

I know that I'm supposed to find Kelvin (K) but I'm not sure on which equation to use..

Look in your text book and class notes, you should be able to find an equation that relates the quantities that are given / asked for (energy, mass, temperature).
