heat units

Postby Mya Majewski 1L » Sun Feb 10, 2019 6:53 pm

Using the equation q=nCdelta T where n is in g, C is in J/Cg and Temperature is in Celsius, isn't the heat unit supposed to be J and NOT kj?

I'm pretty sure as long as the units match you should be good.
So if the units you need is J in order to cancel out the other J, but it's given to you in KJ, but convert KJ to J so that they all cancel out.

I think since C is in J/g, the final answer should be in J.
