The general law of heating or cooling when the material does not change its state , as in heat treating, is as follow

Q = m . eH . ( Te - T i )

where

Q = power , in BTU

m = mass in pound

eH = specific heat   in BTU / pound F

  [ for water is 1 , Aluminiun = 0.22 , Cooper = 0.094]  

  Te =  ending Temperature [ F ]

 Ti =  initial Temperature  [F ]
