A 100-g aluminum calorimeter contains a mixture of 40 g of ice and 200 g of water at equilibrium. A copper cylinder of mass 300 g is heated to 350 C and then dropped into the calorimeter. What is the final temperature of the calorimeter and its contents if no heat is lost to the surroundings?

specific heat of water = 1.00 cal/gC specific heat of aluminum = 0.22 cal/gC
specific heat of copper = 0.093 cal/gC heat of fusion of water = 79.7 cal/g
