Heat Calculator
Top
Heat is defined as the energy transfer due to difference in the temperature between a system and its surroundings.

Heat Calculator is used to calculate the change in temperature, heat energy, specific heat, and mass of body.
 

Step by Step Calculation

Back to Top
Step 1 :  

Heat Formulas:


 


H = Cp * m * $\Delta$T


 


Cp = $\frac{H}{m * \Delta T}$


 


m = $\frac{H}{C_{p} * \Delta T}$


 


$\Delta$T = $\frac{H}{C_{p} * m}$


 


Where,


 


H = Heat energy


 


m = mass


 


$\Delta$T = Change in Temperature


 


Cp = Specific Heat



Step 2 :  

Put the values in the formula and calculate it further.



Example Problems

  1. John is performing the experiment, where he realized that he has to raise the temperature from 25o C to 30o c. If he has the mass of 1000gms. Calculate the heat needed to raise the temperature?


    Step 1 :  

    Given:


     


    Cp = 4.184 J/kg * degrees C


     


    m = 1000 gms = 1 kg


     


    $\Delta$ T = 5 oC


     


    Formula:


     


    H = Cp * m * $\Delta$T



    Step 2 :  

    Put the values in the formula and calculate it further.


     


    H = 4.184 $\times$ 1 $\times$ 5

    = 20.92 J



    Answer  :  

    H = 20.92 J



  2. Calculate the specific heat of a compound having 1 kg of mass which is releasing 2000 j of heat and its tempreature is increased from 30o c to 50o c?


    Step 1 :  

    Given:


     


    H = 2000 J


     


    m = 1 kg


     


    $\Delta T$ = 20 oC


     


    Formula:


     


    Cp = $\frac{H}{m * \Delta T}$



    Step 2 :  

    Put the values in the formula and calculate it further.


     


    Cp = $\frac{2000}{1*20}$


     


         = 100 J/kg * degrees C



    Answer  :  

    Cp = 100 J/kg * degrees C
