If anyone could possibly help me and explain how to do this problem it would be much appreciated..(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A 50g copper mass is heated by placing it in boiling water. It is then placed in a beaker containing 250g of an unknown liquid at 20C. The final temperature of the weight and liquid is found to be 25C. What is the specific heat of the liquid? (Assume no heat is lost to the surroundings.)

Thanks..
