I'm reading about the subject of heat in a basic physics book. If I am not mistaken the formula to work out how much energy is required to increase the temperature of water is
e = M * t * shc
- e is energy in Joules
- M is mass in kg
- t is temperature to increase by in °C
- shc is specific heat capacity in J/kg°C
If I need to solve how much the temperature has varied I rearrange the equation like this...
t = e / M / shc
And this is where I get stuck.
- e = 7.2 * 108 J
- M = 105 kg
- shc = 4.23 J/kg°C
What is the resulting unit of measurement of the following?
e / M = ? M / shc = ?
