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.

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 ...
