Step 1

Given data: help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseInitial temperature (T ) of 92.9 g(m, ) of water = 89.3 °C Initial temperature (T2) of 35.1 g (m, ) of water 23.9 °C fullscreen
Step 2

Since heat transfers from 92.9 g of water to 35.1 g of water, the heat transfer (q) must be equal in magnitude but opposite sign. The final temperature of combined water is calculated as shown below. help_outlineImage Transcriptionclosem, Caar (AT)= -m Casr (AT) m(T,-T) -m(T, -T) тТ, - тТ, %3 -т,Т, +т,T, ater тT, + m,T, — тТ, + т,T, т,Т, + m,Tz Т, т, + т, (1)- Where, T, is the final temperature of combined water. m is the mass of first water sample m2 is the mass of second water sample T is the initial temperature of first water sample T2 is the initial temperature of second water sample. fullscreen
