Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0alright lets try solving for delta t really quick \[\frac{5.31x10^5}{(2690g)(4.184)}=\Delta T\] let me know what you get.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that will give you the amount that the water changed, but then you have to subtract that from the final temp of the water to get where you started from
