  1. heat lost by alloy + heat gained by water = 0
    heat lost or gained = mass x specific heat x (Tfinal-Tinitial).
    mass alloy x specific heat alloy x (Tfinal-Tinitial) + mass water x specific heat water x (Tfinal-Tinitial) = 0
    You must look up the specific heat of water, the specific heat of the alloy is the only unknown, you know the mass of water and mass of the alloy. I note you spelled Celsius two ways, the correct way is Celsius, not Celcius, probably just a typo. Post your work if you get stuck.
