*Question*

A copper calorimeter can with mass 0.100 kg contains 0.160 kg of water and 0.018 kg of ice in thermal equilibrium at atmospheric pressure.

If 0.750 kg of lead at a temperature of 255 degrees C is dropped into the calorimeter can, what is the final temperature? Assume that no heat is lost to the surroundings.

*Related Formula*

[tex] Q_1 + Q_2 + Q_3 = 0 [/tex]

[tex] Q = mc\Delta T [/tex]

[tex] \Delta T = T_{initial} - T_{final} [/tex]

The initial temperature of the Ice/Water/Container, so I am not quite sure what the best way to start this question is.

Any suggestions?
