What equation do you think you should use here?

Looking at the units of the heat capacity (C[sub]p[/sub]) that you have, it looks like the equation should be:

C[sub]p[/sub] =[u][color=#dddddd]E[/color] ∆H [color=#dddddd]C[/color][/u]
[color=#dddddd][sub]p[/sub] =AE[/color][sup]m×∆T[/sup]
Where ∆H is the Change in heat (in J)
m = mass of object (in g)
∆T = Change in Temperature (in °C or K)

Rearrange & calculate!
(Remembering at the end that 1000J == 1kJ)

is this the answer to the heat problem

2083.35kj

Yes, that's correct, but your units are in correct.
Note the bits I have highlighted in red, then adjust your units!
