Question by Giancoli, Douglas C., Physics: Principles with Applications, 7th Ed., ©2014, Reprinted by permission of Pearson Education Inc., New York.
Problem 14

What will be the equilibrium temperature when a 265-g block of copper at 245C245 ^\circ \textrm{C} is placed in a 145-g aluminum calorimeter cup containing 825 g of water at 12.0C12.0 ^\circ \textrm{C}?

18.5C18.5^\circ\textrm{C} Note: At 2:53 I mis-spoke by saying 290J/kg instead of 390J/kg. It's written and calculated correctly.

at 2:53 I think you said 290J instead of 390J. Thanks for explanation though this was a hard problem

I'm glad it helped! I made a note about how I mis-spoke, and thank you for mentioning that.
