I believe this is a heat capacity problem.

The equation for heat capacity is Q=cmT, where Q = the heat lost or gained, c = specific heat, m = mass in grams, and T = the temperature change, (

The density and volume are used to calculate the mass, most likely of water. Mass = density x volume.

In order to determine the final temperature,

Rearrange the heat capacity equation to isolate T.

Now plug in your known values to get T, the change in temperature.

For example, suppose 300.0 calories were added to 100.0 grams of water at an initial temperature of

The initial temperature,
