I'm really stuck on this question:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What will be the final temperature if 50.0 g of steam at 100 degrees celsius is mixed with 600 mL of water at 10.0 degrees celsius? (Answer: 58.3 degrees celsius)

So far I've got:

heat lost (steam) = heat gained (water)

nH + mc(delta)t = mc(delta)t

Sorry I don't know how to make the delta symbol.

(500g/18.02g/mol)(40.65 kJ/mol) + 0.500 kg(2.02 kJ/kg*C)(100-t) = 0.600 kg(4.19 kJ/kg*C)(t-10)

When I calculated everything, I didnt' get 58.3*C, so maybe someone can tell me where I went wrong in either my formulas or calculations. Thanks.
