Calculate the equilibrium temperature of aluminum and water.

A 10kg aluminum block of (c=920J/KgC) at 75 degrees C is dropped into 100kg of water ( c=4186J/kgC) at 50 degrees C. Assuming the heat only passes between the water and the aluminum (no losses) what will the equilibrium temperature (in degrees C) be?

Assume that the equilibrium temperature (in degrees C) is T.
Since the heat ...
