Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

what will be the equilibrium temperature when a 270 g block of copper at 300 degrees C is placed in a 150 g Al calorimeter cup containing 820 g of water at 12 degree C?

My answer is 20.2 C Is this correct?

I done is like so 270 * (390)*(300-T) = (820)*(900)(T-12) sorry but i forgot where I referenced this formula, I think i am confused with this problem though. It doesnt seem right to me so i thought i would ask?

Thanks!
