Heating Water : Modeling with a Linear Equation

Water is the most importnt substance on Earth. One reason for its usefulness is that is exists as a liquid over a wide range of temp. In its liquid range, water absorbs or releases heat directly in proportion to its change in temp. Consider the following data that shows temp of a 1,000 g sampe of water at normal atmospheric pres
