## Homework Statement

A blacksmith drops a 0.7 kg horseshoe of iron at a temperature of 1200 ̊C into a bucket of

0.5 L

of water at an initial temperature of 30 ̊C. How much of the water boils off? Assume the bucket

absorbs none of the heat.

## Homework Equations

I believe Q = mc delta(T) is what I'm aiming to use here, but I'm not entirely sure how

## The Attempt at a Solution

I'm a bit lost, I know that the two objects (shoe and water) will ultimately reach the same final temperature, and I can write Q = mc delta(T) to reflect that, but I'm unsure how it corresponds to the water that boils off, and how I might find that value? I'm guessing it'd be the volume of steam which will share the same final T as the water and shoe? Not sure how to find it though.

Thank You
