Homework Help: A small heat transfer question

  1. Jul 9, 2007 #1
    When room temperature is at 19 degree centigrade,
    I found that water temperature is at about 20 degree centigrade

    a small plastic cup at volume of 3ml, filled with 1ml of water,
    put in a secluded shaker at the temperature of 42 degree centigrade,
    , what should the water temperature inside be? higher than 42 or lower than 42, how much higher or lower could it be?

    It could be a lot higher or a lot lower depending on what the problem actually is. The statement of this problem is pretty incoherent, sorry.
