A 505g piece of copper tubing is heated to 99.9 degrees C and placed in an insulated vessel containing 59.8g of water at 24.8 degrees C. Assuming no loss of water and a heat capacity for the vessel of 10.0 J/K, what is the final temperature of the system? (c of coppuer is 0.387 J/(gk))

2. Relevant equations

q = c x mass x change in temperature

change in termperature = T[final] - T[initial]
