    1672 J


    We are supposed to find out the energy released by water when cooled from 50° C to 30°C.

    We have the relation that,


    Information is given that s=4.18 J / g*°C,

    m=20.0 g,

    and ΔT is - 20° C.

    Hence by substituting we get,


    (minus symbol represents that energy is being released)

    1672 J is release when water is cooled from 50° C to 30°C.
