I am trying to calculate the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of a rubber sphere by 20 degree's Celcius within 10 seconds. The rubber sphere will be heated via radiation in a closed system.

I have calculated the specific heat capactity, by using the formula

q = m x Cg x (Tf - Ti)

However, it does not tell me how long it will take for the sphere to reach the desired temperature.


While I know that this post may seem to be from a student looking to get his/her homework done for them, I can assure you that I am not a student. I am a part-time hobbyist and my current tinkering requires that I get some clarity my question posted above.


Any help, pointing me in any direction, would be very much appreciated.
