    the block will absorb heat until it is 80°C.

    The metal will cool down and the water will heat up to an intermediate temperature that is equal for both.

    The final temperature depends upon the relative amounts of metal and water, and the specific heats of each.

    There is actually a theorem in Calculus that applies to this: the Mean Value Theorem,which states that the final temperature has to be somewhere in between.
