You place 2 beakers at 25 degrees celsius on a hot plate.
Beaker A = 100.00 mL liquid Mercury
Beaker B = 100.00 mL liquid Water
Each absorb 15 KJ of heat.
What is the final temp. of each liquid?

Have you attempted the problem? Keep in mind the general formula

$$q=mc\Delta t$$

where q is heat flow in joules (or kilojoules), m is mass in grams (or kilograms, if q was in kilojoules), c is the specific heat capacity in the appropriate units, and t the temperature in °C.
