### Practice exercise 9.2B 6th edition

The temperature of 5.5 g of stainless steel is increased from 20. C to
100.C. What is the change in the entropy of the stainless steel? The specific heat
capacity of stainless steel is 0.51 J(C)-1g-1.?

I don't understand what to do when given mass in grams but not moles for this case. Please help :(
