## Homework Statement

Solve algebraically for T2 then find T2.

T

_{1C}=63 Celsius

T

_{1H}=79.5 Celsius

M

_{CW}=8.63g

M

_{BW}=36.48g

## Homework Equations

Q

_{Lost}= Q

_{Gained}

-m

_{bw}c

_{w}(T

_{2}-T

_{1H}) = m

_{cw}c

_{w}(T

_{2}-T

_{1C})

## The Attempt at a Solution

Trying to solve algebraically I arrived at:

T

_{2}= m

_{cw}t

_{1C}+m

_{bw}t

_{1h}[tex]/[/tex](m

_{bw}+m

_{cw})

But when substituting the values I get T2 = 123.66J from the original equation and T2 = 76.34 when using the equation I derived from the original.

Can someone please show me where I am going wrong with the equation here?

Thanks!
