Lab 9.1 - how to enter unpartitioned space [SOLVED - actually, wrong assumption]

I made 10 GB of unpartitioned space on sdc:

lsblk
NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT
sda 8:0 0 149,1G 0 disk
├─sda1 8:1 0 1K 0 part
├─sda2 8:2 0 33,5G 0 part /
├─sda3 8:3 0 113,7G 0 part /home
└─sda5 8:5 0 1,9G 0 part [SWAP]
sdb 8:16 0 74,5G 0 disk
├─sdb1 8:17 0 67,1G 0 part /mnt/pool
└─sdb2 8:18 0 7,5G 0 part /mnt/share
sdc 8:32 0 57,3G 0 disk
└─sdc2 8:34 0 47,3G 0 part
sr0 11:0 1 1024M 0 rom

Exercise is to use:
dd if=/dev/zero of=imagefile bs=1M count=1024

I don`t want to use dd (disk destroyer) without precaution.

How to enter that unpartitioned space and execute this line with no harm done?
