# Student A drops 3 metal washers at 75 deg C into 50 ml of 25 deg C water and student B drops 3 metal washers at 75 C into 25 ml of 25 C water. Which student will get a greater change in the temperature of the water? Why?

Change will be greater for student $B$.

#### Explanation:

Both the students are dropping $3$ metal washers at $75$ deg C

• $A$ into 50 ml of 25 deg C water and

• $B$ into 25 ml of 25 deg C water

As temperature and quantum of washers is same,

but temperature and quantum of water is less in case of student $B$

the change will be greater for student $B$.
