A coin dealer offered a rare silver coin, suspected that it might be a counterfeit nickel copy. The dealer heated the coin, which weighed 17.0 g to 100°C in boiling water and then dropped the hot coin into 29.0 g of water at T = 16.5°C in an insulated coffee-cup, and measured the rise in temperature. If the coin was really made of silver, what would the final temperature of the water be (in °C)? (for nickel, s = 0.445 J/g°C; for silver, s = 0.233 J/g°C )
