A piece of metal with a mass of 84.1 g and temperature of 88.4 ºC was dropped into a insulating cup containing 196.2 g of water at 22.0 ºC. After thermal equilibrium is established, what is the final temperature (in °C)? {Specific heat capacity: water = 4.184 J/g•°C and the given metal 0.592 J/g•°C} Reminders: qmetal + qwater = 0 due to the conservation of energy, and q = s*m*∆T, and delta is final minus initial. Answer: 25.80 ± 2% Could you show me the steps?
