Default mass source with a desired temperature

skibbel is on a distinguished road

sorry that might be some trivial problem, but i'm new to fluent.
i created a simple mass source and want the temperature of the incoming mass to have a specific value.

If i don't use an energy source at the same location, the temperature seems random to me.

I tried to calculate the necessary energy source with cp*m*dT which had no sucess. I guess the formula is more complex, do you know how to calculate the right energy source to get the desired temperature?

Hope you can help
