### What does 20 Celsius mean?

20 degrees Celsius is a temperature or a temperature range on
the Celsius scale, where 0 is the freezing point of water and 100
is the boiling point of water.
If the air temperature is 20 degrees Celsius, the weather is
cool but not cold.
If a pot of water is raised in temperature by 20 degrees Celsius
it is heated by a set amount.
20 degrees Celsius is the same as 68 degrees Fahrenheit.

### How many calories of heat would it take to raise the temperature of 256 grams of water from 20 degrees to 99 degrees?

A calorie is the amount of heat you need to raise the
temperature of one gram of water by one degree Celsius. Assuming
you are raising the temperature of the water from twenty degrees
Celsius to ninety-nine degrees Celsius, it would take 20,000
calories.
To calculate this, subtract 20 from 99. This is the amount of
degrees you need to raise the temperature of the water by. Then
multiply that number by 256, the amount of water in grams. You
should get 20,244 calories. In significant digits, your answer
should be 20,000 calories.

###### Asked in Science

### What does it mean to say that the specific heat capacity of water is greater than that of iron?

Heat capacity is the amount of heat needed to increase the
temperature of an element (a given mass) by a temperature unit.
Specific Heat Capacity is the amount of heat in Joules
needed to heat 1kg of an element by 1 degree
Kelvin.
Joules per Kilogram Kelvin
If the SHC of water is higher than that of iron, it means, you
need more heat to increase the temperature of 1kg of water in 1
degree Celsius, than the heat you need to increase the temperature
in 1 degree Celsius of the same mass of iron.
P.S.
A Celsius temperature difference is the same as a Kelvin
temperature difference. In measuring SHC, we only need to focus on
temperature difference rather than the temperature value. Add
273.15 to the Celsius measurement of the temperature to get the
Kelvin temperature value.

###### Asked in Chemistry

### How is kelvin converted to Celsius?

To convert kelvin to Celsius, subtract 273.15 from kelvin. So if
you are at 273.15 kelvin, you are at zero degrees Celsius.
The above is almost true. 0 degrees Kelvin is equivalent to
(minus) - 273.15 degrees Celsius. So you would need to add that
amount to reveal the temperature in degrees Celsius.
