    Solution Preview

    Material in a particular phase, like the solid phase aluminum block in the problem, has a specific heat capacity. This is the amount of heat required to raise one unit of mass of a substance by one unit of temperature. So, one standard set of units to use is this--Joules per kilogram per degree Kelvin.

    Every substance may have a different specific heat capacity. Even one substance may have different specific heat at ...

    Solution Summary

    The solution provides an excellent explanation as the problem is solved. The expert calculates the final temperature after heat is added to a block of aluminum.
