A 110.-g sample of copper (specific heat capacity = 0.20 J/°C · g) is heated to 82.4°C and then placed in a container of water at 22.3°C. The final temperature of the water and copper is 23.5°C. What is the mass of the water in the container, assuming that all the heat lost by the copper is gained by the water?

  • Chemistry -

    [nass Cu x specific heat Cu x (Tfinal-Tinitial)] + [mass H2O x specific heat H2O x (Tfinal-Tinitial)] = 0
    Solve for mass H2O.
