🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor de Laat's class at University of Guelph.

Solution: How much heat is required to warm 1.50 kg of sand from 26.0 oC to 100.0 oC?        

Problem

How much heat is required to warm 1.50 kg of sand from 26.0 oC to 100.0 oC?        

Solution

The amount of heat required to warm a substance is determined using heat capacity. The equation below allows us to solve for the heat released or absorbed when warming a substance.


For the equation above:

q = heat, J 

m = mass (g)

Cs = specific heat capacity of sand (J / (g oC) )

ΔT= change in temperature. (°C)
