A2.0-kg piece of steel with a temperature of 70 degree C is submerged in 1.0 kg of water at 15 degree C. At what temperature does the water/metal system reach equilibrium? The specific heat of steel is 0.107 cal/(g*K). Specific Heat of water is 4185 J/(kg*K.( The answer is 27 C)
HOW? I keep getting 70 degree C when I do m*C*delta T (of steel) = m* C* delta T (of water)
