In calculating the heat capacity of the calorimeter, which temperature difference should be larger in magnitude, Th (change in temperature of the hot water) or Tc (change in temperature of the cold water)? Assume equal masses of both hot and cold water. Explain your answer.

- Heat lost by hot water doesn't equal the heat gained by cold water, since they are mixed and the calorimeter gains heat, as well
