# A bucket contains 8 kg of water at 25°C and 2 kg of water at 80°C is poured into it. Neglecting the heat absorbed by the bucket, calculate the final temperature of water.

By the principle of mixtures,

m x c (T1-T) = m x c x(T-T2)

2 x 4200(80-T) = 8 x 4200(T-25)

(4200 on both sides get cancelled)

160-2T = 8T-200

360 = 10T

T= 36 degree Celcius
