|35 A 50.0-gram block of copper at 10.0°C is
carefully lowered into 100.0 grams of water
at 90.0°C in an insulated container. Which
statement describes the transfer of heat in this
(1) The water loses heat to the block until both are at 10.0°C.
(2) The block gains heat from the water until both are at 90.0°C.
(3) The water loses heat and the block gains heat until both are at the same temperature that is between 10.0°C and 90.0°C.
(4) The water gains heat and the block loses heat until both are at the same temperature that is between 10.0°C and 90.0°C.
