51.34 g of water at 81.5 oC is added to a calorimeter that contains 52.13 g of water at 40.7 oC. If the final temperature of the system is 59.4 oC, what is the calorimeter constant (Ccalorimeter) ? Use 4.184 J/goC for the heat capacity of water.
[mass H2O x specific heat H2O x (Tfinal-Tinitial)] + [Ccal x (Tfinal-Tinitial)] = 0
