A block of aluminum with a volume of 98.5 cm3 absorbs 67.4 J of heat. If its initial temperature is 32.5 °C, what is its final temperature? (density of aluminum = 2.70 g/cm3)

Solution 96P

Step 1:

Rise in temperature ΔT can be calculated using below equation

q = mcΔT

where

q = heat energy

m = mass

c = specific heat

ΔT = change in temperature
