# How much energy would it take to raise 4 grams of water by 6 degrees Celcius?

Friday, July 16th, 2010

### Solution:

Specific heat capacity for water = 4.18 Joules/(gram*degree Celcius)

(how much energy is required per gram per change in degrees C)

mass = 4g

Change in temperature = 6 deg C

energy required = mass * change in temperature * specific heat capacity

= 4g * 6 deg C * 4.18 J/(g*deg C)

= 100.32 Joules
