A 5 gram piece of aluminum foil at 100 degrees C is dropped into a 25 gram container of water at 20 degrees C. What is the final temperature of the aluminum?

Set the energy gained by water equal to the energy lost by aluminum and the sum of the changes in temperature equal to 80 degrees. Solve these two simultaenous equations for change in temperature.
