7th Edition 4A.7

Postby Fiona Jackson 1D » Wed Jan 23, 2019 3:29 pm

Could someone explain how to do 4A.7, specifically why do you have to add the two heat energies, that of the copper pot and of the water?

In this question, the entire system is consisting of both the copper pot and water inside the copper. You must treat heat flow going to the copper pot, as it also changes in temperature as does the water inside.
