1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data An 8 000-kg aluminum flagpole 100-m long is heated by the sun from a temperature of 10°C to 20°C. Find the heat transferred (in J) to the aluminum if the specific heat of aluminum is 0.215 cal/g °C. 2. Relevant equations Q=mc delta T 3. The attempt at a solution (8000000g)(.215cal/g)(10) so i get 17200000 cal convert to J 7.2e7 J is that correct??
