We are asked to heat capacity at constant pressure, C p, (in J/mol∙K) for the gas
We go through the following steps to solve this problem:
Step 1. Calculate the amount of heat added based on the heating curve
Step 2. Calculate the heat capacity
Consider the heating curve shown below for 22.86 grams of an unknown substance. You may assume constant pressure conditions. Note: the points are labeled as (amount of heat added, temperature).
Calculate the heat capacity at constant pressure, C p, (in J/mol∙K) for the gas. Show all work and circle your final answer. The moles were identified to be 0.496 mol.
