Problems: Specific heat capacity

IB Physics: Problems: Specific heat capacity

1. A 200g piece of copper is moved from the freezer at a temperature of -15°C to a cup containing 500g of water at room temperature (20°C). If the cup has a thermal capacity of 1kJ°C-1 and ignoring heat lost calculate the final temperature of the water + copper.Specific heat capacity copper = 380 Jkg-1°C-1Specific heat capacity water = 4200 Jkg-1°C-12. When 1 litre of water is placed into a kettle (water boiler)...
