Ideally, when a thermometer is used to measure the temperature of an object, the temperature of the object itself
should not change. However, if a significant amount of heat flows from the object to the thermometer, the temperature will change. A thermometer has a mass of 26.8 g, a specific heat capacity of c = 825 J/(kg C°), and a temperature of 10.7 °C. It is immersed in 192 g of water, and the final temperature of the water and thermometer is 56.6 °C. What was the temperature of the water in degrees Celsius before the insertion of the thermometer?
