Given That 1 Kcal Of Heat Is Required

Did you know that 1 kcal of heat is required to increase the temperature of 1 kg of water by 1 degree Celsius? 3

How many calories do you need to heat 100 kg of water to 20 degrees Celsius for bathing?

1 Kcal burns 1 kg (1 liter) to 1 degree. There, 100 kcal will heat 100 kgs (100 liters) at 1 degree. Multiply by 20 (increase the desired temperature) and you will need 2000 kcal.

Explain the relationship:

1 kcal / (1 kg * 1 C) = x / (100 kg * 20 C).

Solution for X:

x = 100 * 20 kcal = 2000 kcal

100x20 times. Thermal energy is proportional to the number of degrees of temperature change.

You mean calories. No need to be confused with calorie intake (slimming plan, diet, knowledge), it is proportional to your total energy. I think it's about Celsius value.
