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
