    mass = 25.03 g


    Given dа ta:

    Initial temperature = 67.5°C

    Final temperature = 25.2°C

    Heat released = - 4425 j

    Mass of water = ?


    Specific heat capacity:

    It is the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one gram of substance by one degree.


    Q = m. c. ΔT

    Q = amount of heat absorbed or released

    m = mass of given substance

    c = specific heat capacity of substance

    ΔT = change in temperature

    ΔT = 25.2°C - 67.5°C

    ΔT = - 42.3°C

    Specific heat of water = 4.18 j/g.°C

    Q = m. c. ΔT

    -4425 j = m * 4.18 j/g.°C * - 42.3°C

    -4425 j = m * - 176.81 j/g

    m = - 4425 j / - 176.81 j/g

    m = 25.03 g
