# The Action Lab: Boiling water with mechanical energy

The Action Lab: The energy required to heat 1 kilogram of water (1 liter) from 24 C to 100 C can be calculated by knowing the heat capacity of water in that temperature range. About 4184 Joules per kilogram per °C. Energy_Joules = (1 kg) * (4184 J/kg°C) * (76°C) = 318,384 Joules (1 Joule)
