Find the heat in calories is required to increase the temp of 54g water from 0 degrees C. The specific heat capacity of water is 1cal/g C?

q = (mass) (temp. change) (sp. heat)
q = (54 g) (____ C) (1cal/g C)
I wrote this:
because you did not provide an ending temperature. Let's say the water was heated up to 65 C from 0 C. We would then have this:
q = (54 g) (65 C) (1cal/g C)
q = 3510 cal
