Asked Dec 8, 2019

In a calorimeter, a 90.0 g piece of metal at 99.1 *C is submerged in 100.0 g of water, that is initially at 20.9 *C. What is the temperature when the metal and water reach thermal equilibrium if the heat capacity of the metal is 0.174 J/g-C (1 decimal point)?



Expert Answer

Step 1

Given information,

Mass of water =100g

Temperature of the water=20.9oC

Specific heat of water = 4.18J/goC

Mass of the metal =90 g
