Phase Change Help

  1. Mar 14, 2005 #1
    A 25.5 gram silver ring ( c=234 J/kg * c) is heated to a temperature of 84 degrees C and then placed in a calorimeter containing 0.05 kg of water at 24 degrees C. The calorimeter is not perfectly insulated and .140 kJ of energy is transferred to the surrounding before a final temperature is reached. What is the final temperature?

    Ok, I was thinking that there is no phase change so im not sure is it just conservation of energy, and if so, how do I start?

    Nevermind, I was able to figure it out.
