a 506g piece of copper tubing is heated to 89.5C and placed in an insulated vessel containing 159g of water at 22.8C. Assuming no loss of water and a heat capacity for the vessel of 10.0J/K, what is the final temperature of the system (c of copper = 0.387 J/g*K)?

    Q=cm(Tf-Ti)

    Q = the heat of an object
    m = the mass
    c = the heat capacity of the substance
    Tf= the final temperature
    Ti= the initial temperature

    Q gained by water = Q lost by copper

    Make sure your units go together.
