    Assuming that no heat is lost, what will the final temperature be when a 15.0 g piece of silicon at 95.0°C is placed in 50.0 g of water at 20.0°C? The specific heat capacity of silicon is 0.169 cal/g°C.

    Expert Answer

    Assuming that no intensity is lost, what accomplish the last sphere be when a 15.0 g fragment of silicon at 95.0°C is placed in 50.0 g of infiltrate at 20.0°C? The specific intensity ability of silicon is 0.169 cal/g°C.

    Expert Counter-argument

    intensity lost by silicon = intensity gained by infiltrate

    msilicon*Ssilicon*DT = mwater*Swater*DT

    15*0.169*(95-x) = 50*1*(x-20)

    x = last sphere of silicon,infiltrate structure = 23.62 C
