Thermochemistry : CoffeeCupCalorimeter (2 Variations)

A block of copper is heated to {x} °C and then is dropped into a coffee cup calorimeter containing {y} g of water at 25.0 °C. The final temperature of the system is 45.1 °C. What is the mass of the copper block to the nearest gram? (Assume all heat is transferred to the water). Write your answer in the box, and do NOT include units. Specific heat capacity of copper = 0.383 J/(g*°C) Specific heat capacity of water...
