A 20 gram piece of metal is added to a sample of 100 grams of water inside a calorimeter. If the metal is at a temperature of 5° Celsius and the water is at 20° Celsius, which of the following best describes what will occur inside the calorimeter?
The final temperature of the water will be 15° Celsius.
The energy gained by the metal equals the energy lost by the water.
The final temperature of the water will be higher than the initial temperature.
The temperature lost by the water will equal the temperature gained by the metal.
