Help! I am lost

  1. Jun 23, 2004 #1
    I am lost on this homework assignment, and I am really hoping that you guys can help me out. Here goes:
    A 500.0-g Fe bar at 212 degrees C is placed in 2.0L of H20 at 24.0 degrees C. What will be the change in temperature of the H2O? (if is assumed that no heat is lost to the surroundings)

    I would really appreciate any help you can provide.

    The heat lost by the iron bar is the same as the heat gained by the water.

    Do you know how to find the temperature change of a material when it loses or gains a given amount of heat?
