Question
Four identical blocks of metal are at 35ºC, 55 ^{0} C, 75 ^{0} C and 95ºC respectively. The specific heat of the material of the four blocks increases with temperature. Which of the following is true about the final temperature T _{f} when all four blocks are brought into contact? (Assuming that no heat is lost to the surroundings)
Choices
Choice (4)  Response  

a.  T _{f} can be either more than or less than 65ºC depending on the precise variation of the specific heat with temperature 

b.  T _{f} will be less than 65ºC 

c.  T _{f} will be more than 65ºC 

d.  T _{f} will be 65ºC
