A 34 g glass thermometer reads 21.6C before it is placed in 135 mL of water. When the water and thermometer come to equilibrium, the thermometer reads 38.7C. What was the original temperature of the water?


I need help on this please could someone please help out.Thank you!

the sum of heats gained is zero.

massglass*specheatglass*(21.6-38.7)+135*specheatwater*(Ti-38.6)=0

solve for Ti
