Q = m*Cp*(del T)
Where m = mass
cp = specific heat capacity = 4.1855 J g–1 K–1 at 15 deg C
del T = temp change = 14.515.5 = – 1 deg C
there fore,
Q = 10*4.1855*1 = – 41.855 J
Hence 42 joules will be release by water when temp is decrease from 15.5 to 14.5 deg C.

The specific heat capacity of water is approximately 4.2 kilojoules per kilogram per Kelvin. 1 degree Celsius is equivalent to 1 Kelvin.
In your example you have 0.01 kilograms of water and a 1 degree temperature change. So multiply 4.2 kilojoules by 0.01 and 1 to get 42 joules. In other words 42 kilojoules is released (answer 2).
