Problem 1PE

On a hot day, the temperature of an 80,000-L swimming pool increases by 1.50ºC . What is the net heat transfer during this heating? Ignore any complications, such as loss of water by evaporation.

Step by Step Solution

Step 1 of 2

Given:

Volume of the pool V=80000L,

Change in temperature

As per equation

Where m is the mass of water and c is the specific heat capacity

Now we are not told of the mass of water as we are given the volume so we need to use the density formula to figure out the mass,

So density is mass per volume ie,
