100 mL of is initially at room temperature (22)C. A chilled steel rod at 2 C is placed in the water. If the final temperature of the system is 21.2 C, what is the mass of the steel bar?
Specific heat of water = 4.18J/g(C)
Specific heat of steel = 0.452J/g(C)

  1. heat lost by water = heat gained by steel

    (m Cp dT) water = (m Cp dT) steel

    mass steel = (m Cp dT) water / (Cp dT) steel
    mass steel = (125 g) x (4.18 J/gC) x (22.0-21.1 C) / [(0.452 J/gC) x (21.1 - 2.0 C)] = 54.5 g steel

    *** 2 ***
    molar heat capacity is J/mole C not J/gC

    4.18 J/gC x (18.0 g / mole) = 75.2 J/moleC

  4. heat lost by water + heat gained by steel = 0
    massH2O x specificheatH2O x (Tf-Ti) + masssteel x specificheatsteel x (Tf-Ti) = 0
    100 x 4.18 x (21.2-22) + masssteel x 0.452 x (21.2-2) = 0
    Solve for mass steel. I get about 40 g but you need to solve it exactly. Watch the signs. Post your work if you get stuck. Tf is final T. Ti is initial T.

  6. It would 24.9 grams
    (105.5g)(0.5°C)(4.184J)=x(19.5)(0.452)
