Problem 42P

The specific heat capacity of Albertson’s Rotini Tricolore is approximately 1.8 J /g∙°C. Suppose you toss 340 g of this pasta (at 25°C) into 1.5 liters of boiling water. What effect does this have on the temperature of the water (before there is time for the stove to provide more heat)?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1 of 4</p>

The specific heat capacity of Albertson’s Rotini Tricolore pasta is about 1.8 J /g∙°C.

The water transfers an amount of heat to the pasta, so the water cools a bit and the pasta heats up.

We have to find the temperature of water and  transferred heat.

The specific heat capacity of water is

Step 2 of 4</p>

The total heat capacity is
