An aluminum bolt has a mass of 21.3 g. It is heated then placed into 839 g of water in a copper calorimeter cup with a mass of 137 g. The initial temperature of the water and the copper cup is 16 oC. The bolt, water and cup arive at an equilibrium temperature of 18.4 oC. What was the temperature in degrees celcius of the bolt before it was placed in the water?
I used this formula and got wrong answer, need help.
Tf = (m1C1T1 + m2C2T2) / (m1C1 + m2C2)
And got 541.3 Degrees C. What is wrong.?
