🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Garbou's class at UCF.

Solution: Typically, water runs through the baseboard copper tubing and, therefore, fresh hot water is constantly running through the piping. However, consider a pipe where water was allowed to sit in the pipe. The hot water cools as it sits in the pipe. What is the temperature change (ΔT) of the water if 202.0 g of water sat in the copper pipe releasing 1760. J of energy to the pipe? The specific heat of water is 4.184 J/(g •°C). Express your answer to four significant figures.
