The amount of boiling water required to raise the temperature of 25.0 kg of water in the bath to body temperature is 4.80 kg. in this process, the heat lost by the boiling water is equal to the heat gained by the room-temperature water. how much heat was transferred in this process?

I will assume body temperature = 37 °C. This information must be provided in the question. Boiling water: intitial temperature = 100 °C mass = 4.80 kg final temperature = 37° C Heat lost by the boiling water = mCpΔt = 4.80 kg * 1000g/kg * 1cal / g °C * (100°C - 37°C) = 302,400 cal   < ----- this is the transferred heat
