# Heat problem

1. Jan 18, 2014

24.100kg of copper at 33.000 degrees Celsius receives 310.000 kJ of heat. Calculate the final temperature of the metal.

2. Relevant equations

Q=mc(t2-t1)

3. The attempt at a solution

I solved the equation for T1

T1=c*m*Q-T2 / C*m

The answer however seems really small and doesn't make sense, is this even the correct formula?

nvm this is the wrong formula how i would still like some help solving this question

It's the right formula - you messed up the algebra.
You are supposed to be solving for the final temperature.

Try starting from $Q=mc\Delta T$
