# How much heat is needed to cool 200 g of aluminum from 80 degrees to 20 degrees?

How much heat is needed to cool 200 g of aluminum from 80 degrees to 20 degrees? Specific heat of aluminum 920J / kg degrees?

Task data: m (mass of taken aluminum) = 200 g (0.2 kg); t0 (initial temperature) = 80 ºС; t (final temperature of aluminum) = 20 ºС.

Reference values: according to the condition Ca (specific heat of aluminum) = 920 J / (kg * K).

The amount of heat released during the cooling of the taken aluminum is determined by the formula: Q = Ca * m * (t0 – t).

Calculation: Q = 920 * 0.2 * (80 – 20) = 11 040 J.

Answer: When 200 grams of aluminum cools down, 11,040 J of heat will be released.
