**drwls**, Sunday, December 11, 2011 at 9:10pmThe specific heat of water, and the watermelon, in British units is 1.0 Btu/lb degF

The heat lost by the watermelon equals the heat gained by the water.

Use that fact to predict the equilibrium temperature.

One gallon of water weighs 8.0 pounds.

17*8.0*C*(T-32) = 25*C*(100-T)

C cancels out. Solve for T
