Question

6. The temperature of a mass of tin increases from 24.0 degrees C to 34.0 degrees C when 250 J of thermal energy are added. Calculate the mass of the tin. The theoretical specific heat capacity of tin is 0.228 J/g degrees C.

  • Answer:

    110 g

    Explanation:

    q = mCΔT

    where q is heat, m is mass, C is specific heat capacity, and ΔT is change in temperature.

    Given q = 250 J, C = 0.228 J/g/°C, and ΔT = 10.0 °C:

    250 J = m (0.228 J/g/°C) (10.0 °C)

    m = 110 g
