# Energy to Increase Temperate of Lake

Not what you're looking for?

Lake Erie contains roughly 4.30 * 10^11 m3 of water. How many years would it take, using the full output of a 1,070 MW electric power plant, to raise the temperature of that volume of water from 10.8 °C to 12.2 °C?

##### Solution Summary

This solution looks at the time required to increase the temperature of water in a lake.

##### Solution Preview

The specific heat of water = 4.184 J / (g * C) = 4,184 J / (kg * C).
The density of water = 1,000 kg / (m ^ 3).
The mass of water in Lake ...
