Calculate the amount of heat (in kJ) required to raise the temperature of a 79.0 g sample of ethanol from 298?

Calculate the amount of heat (in kJ) required to raise the temperature of a 79.0 g sample of ethanol from 298.0 K to 385.0 K. The specific heat capacity of ethanol is 2.42 J/g°C.

Use the formula :
Q = mass x specific heat x delta T
Q = 79.0 gx 2.42 J/g°C ( 385 – 298)=1.66 x 10^4 J => 16.6 kJ
