Physics question on Heat Exchange?

  1. May 1, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    The sun heats 2.00 x 10^2 kg of ammonia gas that is kept at constant volume in a large tank. Assuming that solar radiation of 6.00 x 10^2 W caused the heating, determine the length of time it took to raise the ammonia's temperature by 12°C.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    You will have to show us what you have done. How many moles of ammonia do you have? What is the molar heat capacity of ammonia gas at constant volume?
