    Let us assume the final temperature of the mixture be T degree C.

    Heat energy taken by 300 gm [email protected] degC + 35 gm ice @0 degC + 120 gm copper container @ 0 degC
    = Heat energy given by steam of 17 gm @ 100 degC

    sp. heat of water sw= 1 cal/gm/C = ...

    Solution Summary

    With good explanations and calculations, the problem is explained and solved. The temperature of resulting mixtures is determined.
