Step 1

Mass of the aluminum is to be calculated when the following data is given-

Initial Temperature of the aluminum, Ti,Al = 50.0 º C

Final temperature of the mixture, Tf = 31.0 ºC

Volume of water = 30.0 mL

Initial temperature of water, Ti,w = 22.0º C

Step 2

This is a thermo- equilibrium situation. At the point of equilibrium, heat lost by the metal would be equal to the heat gained by the water.

Step 3

To calculate the heat gained by water, first determi...
