1. Homework Statement

How can you heat [tex]1 \,\mathrm{kg}[/tex] mineral water which is at a temperature of [tex]0 \,{}^\circ \mathrm{C}[/tex] to at least [tex]60 \,{}^\circ \mathrm{C}[/tex] with using [tex]1 \,\mathrm{kg}[/tex] plain water at a temperature of [tex]100 \,{}^\circ \mathrm{C}[/tex]?

2. Homework Equations

[tex]\Delta Q = mc\Delta T[/tex]

3. The Attempt at a Solution
[tex]\underbrace{(1000 g)(4.18~J/g~C)(60~C)}_{\text{heat gained}} = \underbrace{m(4.18~J/g~C)(100~C - 60~C)}_{\text{heat lost}}[/tex]
But then [tex]m>1000 g[/tex]. So I really don't know how to do it. There should be a nasty trick in it.

Check your cp's. They should be different given the temperature difference and though subtle, material difference.

Thanks but don't think that there are so much difference between them. Any other ideas?
