24.62 g of nickel heated and then immersed in 200ml of water. the temperature of the water rose 22.50c to 32.20c.The specific heat of NI is .470J/g*C. What is the temperature of the Ni before it is immersed in the water?

  • Science -

    [mass metal x specific heat metal x (Tf-Ti)] + [mass H2O x specific heat H2O x (Tf-Ti)] = 0
    Tf is T final. Ti is T initial.
    Solve for Ti metal
