What are the factors that affect the amount of energy needed to change the temperature of a substance?
Factors which affect the amount of energy needed to change the temperature of a substance are: 1) the amount (mass) of the substance 2) what temperature change is required (from what temperature to what temperature) 3) the specific heat of the substance, which is "the number of calories required to raise the temperature of 1 gram of the substance by 1 degree Centigrade" 4) the ambient temperature of the surroundings where this change is to…
