##### Rearranging the formula q = mc delta T
« on: March 06, 2008, 09:14:59 AM »

What mass of water could be heated from 0 to 50 degrees Celcius by the addition of 8.00 kJ of heat?

I know the formula for quanitiy of heat transferred in joules(J) is q = mc deltaT

However, how would I rearrange the formula to be able to solve for mass (m)?

Dear Frederick95;

Which value of your Equation are you missing? Possibly c4.1840 kJoule kg-1 °K-1 ?
(I think “Rearranging” you learned in primary class 4, or 5, or so.)

Good Luck!

So how is the formula rearranged to find m?

Dear Frederick95;

q =  c * m * ΔT    ---->   q /  ΔT  =  c * m   ---->   q /  ΔT  / c  =  m !!
(Looks that soooo complicated?)

Good Luck!
