Solution: Dissolving 3.0 g of CaCl2(s) in 150.0 g of water in a calorimeter (Figure 5.12) at 22.4°C causes the temperature to rise to 25.8°C. What is the approximate amount of heat involved in the dissolution,

Problem

Dissolving 3.0 g of CaCl2(s) in 150.0 g of water in a calorimeter (Figure 5.12) at 22.4°C causes the temperature to rise to 25.8°C. What is the approximate amount of heat involved in the dissolution, assuming the specific heat of the resulting solution is 4.18 J/g°C? Is the reaction exothermic or endothermic?
