(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A 105.05 g ice cube at -15°C is placed in an aluminum cup whose initial temperature is 73°C. The system comes to an equilibrium temperature of 24°C. What is the mass of the cup?

2. Relevant equations

Q=mc (delta T)

3. The attempt at a solution

the sum of total heat in the system is equal to zero.

Qice+Qaluminium cup=0

MiceCice(delta T)+MaluminiumCaluminium(delta T)=0

I solved for mass of aluminium cup, and got 0.1951 kg. But, it is wrong.

Please help.
