A blacksmith drops a 0.60 kg iron horseshoe into a bucket containing 25 kg of water.
(a) If the initial temperature of the horseshoe is 600°C, and the initial temperature of the water is 40°C, what is the equilibrium temperature of the system? Assume no heat is exchanged with the surroundings.
physics 2 ** -
The heat lost by the horseshoe equals the heat gained by th water. Write an equation that says this and solve it for the final temperature.
They should have told you what the horseshoe is made of, because you will need to know its specific heat.
