### HW problem 4A.7

Posted:

**Wed Jan 30, 2019 9:12 pm**Calculate the heat that must be supplied to a copper kettle of mass 400.0 g containing 300.0 g of water to raise its temperature from 20.0 degrees Celsius to the boiling point of water, 100.0 degrees Celsius. (given specific heat capacities for water and copper)

Would I find the heat capacity for water and copper separately, and then add those together to get my answer? Using q=mC delta(T)

But then for the second part, how do I find the percentage of heat used to raise the temp of water?
