    Please answer step-by-step with solutions:

    A 150.0 iron bar at 330 degrees C is put in 1.00 kg water at 20.0 degrees C. What is the final temperature of the bar?
    (Hint: bar and water will be the same at the end.)

    Cs = 0.45J/(grams degree C) for iron
    Cs = 4.18J/(grams degree C) for water
