If the initial temperature of the tea is 175̊F, what would the final temperature of the tea be once the ice cubes have completely melted?
Specific heat capacity of tea = 4.019 kJ/kg K
Weight of ice cubes = 65 grams total weight
Initial temperature of ice cubes =  18 C
Weight of tea = 400.0 grams

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0basically took a weighted average using the weights of tea and ice cubes relative to total weight **18C = .4F >175(400/465) .4(65/465)
