Suppose that at low temperatures the heat capacity of a substance is
proportional to absolute temperature T: C = &alpha T, where &alpha is
a constant. Initially you have a mass m0 of this substance
at an absolute temperature of n1T0. You have
another mass m0 of the same substance at an absolute temperature
of n2T0. The two objects of equal mass
are placed in thermal contact with each other. They come to thermal
equalibrium at a temperature T =
what is n3? Note that n1, n2, and
n3 are unitless.
