A volume of 75.0 mL
is initially at room temperature (22.00 ∘C
). A chilled steel rod at 2.00 ∘C
is placed in the water. If the final temperature of the system is 21.00 ∘C
, what is the mass of the steel bar?
Use the following values:
specific heat of water = 4.18 J/(g⋅∘C)
specific heat of steel = 0.452 J/(g⋅∘C)
