A thermometer of mass 0.0550 kg and of specific heat 0.837 kJ/kgK reads 15.0C. It is then completely immersed in 0.300 kg of water, and it comes to the same final temperature as the water. If the thermometer reads 44.0 C, what was the temperature of the water before the insertion of the thermometer?
