the question was

"A hard boiled egg with a heat capacity of 2.0x10^3 J/Kg'C and a mass of 50g is cooled from 100'C by 1L of water at 5'C. What will be the final temperature of the water and the egg after they have been allowed to sait for a few moments.?"

this is what I know:
The egg
Eh or Q= 2.4x10^3 J/Kg'C
m1=50g which is 0.05Kg
t1=100'C
t2=?
c=?
The water
m=? ->(are you suppose to change 1L into a mass? if yes how so?Fo you use density or something?)
t1=5'C
t2=?
Q=4.18x10^3J/Kg'C(i got this from my textbook)

I also know:
(m1)(c1)(delta t)=-(m2)(c2)(delta t2)

Q=(m)(c)(delta t)

Can you set me on the right track, please?
