The specific heat capacity of albertsons pasta is approximately 1.8 J/g*C degrees. Suppose you toss 340 g of this pasta (at 25 degrees celsuis) into 1.5 liters of boiling water. What effect does this have on the temperature of water. (before there is time for stove to add more heat)?

2. Relevant equations

Q=c*m*delta(T)

3. The attempt at a solution

When the 25 degree pasta is tossed into boiling stove of water, doesn't the temperature of the stove decrease and the temperature of pasta increase? What physical quantity do I need to mathematically determined to find out the effect ?
