Heat Capacity in Equilibrium QuestionWatch
I've been using the equation m1*c1*ΔT1 = m2*c2*ΔT2 (where m is mass, c is specific heat capacity and ΔT is temperature change) and rearranging it into
Final Temperature = m1*c1*T1 + m2*c2*T2/m1*c1 + m2*c2
but i'm not getting the right answer. I'm not sure where I'm going wrong but some help would be appreciated.
Ice has to get energy to reach 0 degrees then get energy to melt then get energy to reach equilibrium temp. It gets this energy from the energy released by the 0.61kg water, as it cools down, the 'ice' water heats up, hence getting an answer of 5.6°C
