A hot 0.25-kg piece of iron is placed in a calorimeter containing room temperature water. How much heat is lost by the iron as it cools from 125 degree C to 75 degree C? I must have the given/work and answer also how much heat is gained by the water

• thermal energy -

heat lost = heat gained.
q = mass x specific heat x delta T.
