q=mc∆T

But the value I'm trying to calculate is the change in temperature so I've rearranged the equation to ∆T= q/mc

I think the numbers and answer I have are correct, but the units are confusing me. My answer clearly needs to be in °C, the joules on the top and the bottom will cancel out but then on the bottom I'm left with kg multiplied by kg

^{-1}.

__3.54 J__

450 kg x 4.2 x 10

^{3}J kg

^{-1}°C

^{-1}

As far as I know, these don't cancel each other out so my answer has the wrong units. I don't know if I've done the entire thing wrong if I'm just confusing myself over something silly. I'd appreciate any help at all.
