If you have 400.0 mL of water at 25.00 °C and add 110.0 mL of water at 95.00 °C, what is the final temperature of the mixture?

    use enthalpy formula \(q = m \ c\ \Delta t\)

    energy lost by hot water = energy absorbed by cool water

    How do you set up the entire equation though?

    .4 * c * (T-25) = -.11 * c * (T-95)

    cancel c, solve T

    yw ! remember this while doing enthalpy related problems : q system = -q surroundings

    Actually I have one more question. Why did you use .4 and .11 instead of 400 and 110?

    yeah we can use 400 and 110 also here, it doesnt matter here

    ideally we must convert mL to grams. becoz in enthalpy equation, m represents mass in grams.

    the conversion to grams doesnt matter here since 1 mL = 1 g, for water

    the correct way of putting the equation would be : 400g * c * (T-25) = 110g * c * (T-95)

    I ended up getting 19.62 degrees, but it's incorrect :/

    400g * c * (T-25) = -110g * c * (T-95) 400 * (T-25) = -110* (T-95)
