If I submerge at hot rod of an unknown material with a mass of 2.50 kg, and a temperature of 450K in a bucket containing 2.00 kg of water at a temperature of 220K and a specific heat of 4200 J/kgK, until they are in thermal equilibrium at 250K, what is the specific heat of the rod? Assume that nothing changes state.
