1. Homework Statement

a 200g calorimeter, with heat capacity = 0.10 cal/g C, contains 300g of water. a 500 g aluminum shot, at 99 Celsius, was poured in the calorimeter. What would be the initial temperature of water in order that the final temperature will be as much above the room temperature as the initial temperature of water was below the room temperature

## Homework Equations

(mass)(heat capacity)(change in temp) of solid= (mass)(heat capacity)(change in temp) of calorimeter + (mass)(heat capacity)(change in temp) of water
