**drwls**, Friday, March 9, 2012 at 12:17pmYou want to lower the temperature of the 800 g of 90 C water by 40 C, to 50 C. The heat loss from the hot water will be 800*50 = 40,000 calories, since the specific heat is C = 1.00 cal/(g*C)

The cold water that you add will also end up at 50 C after mixing, and it will have to lose 40,000 calories.

The mass M of cold water must be such that

M*C*30 = 40,000 calories

M = 1333 g
