each day the average family use 100kg of hot water to kill bacteria, the water going into the tank at 20°c must be heated t0 60°c calculate the energy needed to increase the temperature of 100kg of water by 40°c specific heat capacity of water = J/kg °c

write down the equation you use, and then show clearly how you work out your answer ?

## specific heat capacity of water = 4186 J/kg K

xxx amount xx xxxx xxxxxx to xxxx x subject from one temperature level to xx other can be xxxxxxxxx as:

Q x cp x dT

xxxxx

Q x xxxxxx xx xxxx (kJ)

xx = specific xxxx (kJ/kg.K)

x = mass (kg)

xx x temperature difference between xxx and xxxx side xxx

xx x xxxx J/kgK

m= 100kg

xxx xxxxx xxx

xx 100 x xxxx x 40 = xxxxxxxx J x 16744 Kj
