Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If a heat flux of of 3W/ meter squared covered the 3.6 X 10^14 meters squared ocean surface and contributed only to a change in temp, how many years to raise average temp of ocean 1 degree C?

I calculated the specific heat of seawater which is 4,000 joules. I am stuck!:surprised
