🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Goodey's class at TAMU.

Solution: A calorimeter was used to measure the heat change when an ionic compound dissolves in water. The final mass of the contents of the calorimeter was 50.73 g and the change in temperature was 2.35 ºC.a) Calculate the heat change of the calorimeter contents, given that its specific heat is 4.10 J/(g ºC).b) Calculate the heat change of the calorimeter, given that its specific heat is 8.5 J/ºC.c) Calculate the heat change of the solution process.

Problem

A calorimeter was used to measure the heat change when an ionic compound dissolves in water. The final mass of the contents of the calorimeter was 50.73 g and the change in temperature was 2.35 ºC.

a) Calculate the heat change of the calorimeter contents, given that its specific heat is 4.10 J/(g ºC).

b) Calculate the heat change of the calorimeter, given that its specific heat is 8.5 J/ºC.

c) Calculate the heat change of the solution process.
