Which characteristic of water contributes to the relatively constant temperatures of the oceans?
A) Water ionizes only slightly.
B) It takes a small amount of heat energy to raise the temperature of water.
C) Water can contain large amounts of salt.
D) Water has the ability to ionize readily.
E) It takes a large amount of heat energy to raise the temperature of water.
How many joules of heat are needed to raise the temperature of 40.0 g of aluminum from 67°C to 89°C, if the specific heat of aluminum is 0.89 J/g°C?
What mass of water will change its temperature by 8°C when 285 J of heat is added to it? The specific heat of water is 4.18 J/g °C.
