A 0.10 kg piece of copper at an initial temperature of 94 degrees C is dropped into 0.20 kg of water contained in a 0.28 kg aluminum calorimeter. The water and calorimeter are initially at 15 degrees C. What is the final temperature of the system when it reacher equilimbirum?

(Cp of Copper = 387J/kg * degC; Cp of Aluminum = 899 J/kg * degC; Cp of Water = 4186J/kg * degC)

thanks for any help

**bobpursley**, Sunday, February 15, 2009 at 1:04pmThe sum of the heats gained in a closed system is zero.

masswater*cw*(Tf-Tiwater)+masscopper*Cc*(Tf-Ticopper)+massAl*Calum*(Tf-Tialum)=0

Put the numbers in, solve for Tf.
