APCHEM-1E3VOE

The specific heat capacity of water is 4.184 $\frac { J }{ g\cdot ºC } $.

If 10.0 grams of water is heated from 20.0 ºC to 30.0 ºC, the quantity of heat, $Q$, that is transferred would be determined by carrying out which of the following operations?

A

$4.184 \times 10.0 \times 10.0$

B

$4.184 \times 10.0 \times 20.0$

C

$4.184 \times 10.0 \times 30.0$

D

$\cfrac { 4.184 }{ \left( 10.0 \times 10.0 \right) } $
