Following the steps of the previous answer,
V= 2.5cm*3.5cm*10.7cm= 93.625 cm3
m= 93.625cm3 * (10.68g/1 cm3) = 999.915g
ΔT = 120 ºC - (-40ºC) = 160 ºC
(4.1868 J/1cal)* (0.222 cal/g ºC) = .9294696 J/gºC
 
Q= (999.915g) * (.9294696 J/gºC) * 160 ºC = 148702 J or 150kJ to 2 sig figs

1. Find the volume of the block (in cm³).
2. Find the mass of the block (in g).
3. Find the change in temperature ΔT (in °C)
4. Convert c=0.222 cal/g°C to J/g°C
5. Find the needed heat energy, Q=m c ΔT
