#### Solution Preview

First some data:
Specific heat capacity of water in liquid form
H2O(l) 4.18
Specific Heat capacity of aluminum
Al(s) 0.89

The heat of vaporization for water is 2260 J/G

We are trying to find the mass of steam that must be added to the calorimeter to bring the total temperature up to 50 degrees C. The total ...

#### Solution Summary

Determining the final mass of a cup using calorimetry is achieved.
