Problem: A volume of 110 mL of H2O is initially at room temperature (22.00°C) A chilled steel rod at 2.00°C is placed n the water. If the final temperature of the system is 21.10°C, what is the mass of the steel bar?Use the following values specific heat of water = 4.18 J/(g•°C) specific heal of steel = 0.452 J/(g•°C) Express your answer to three significant figures and include the appropriate units.
