A 50.0 mL sample of a 1.00 M solution of CuSO4 is mixed with 50.0 mL of 2.00 M KOH in a calorimeter. The temperature of both solutions was 20.2°C before mixing and 26.3°C after mixing. The heat capacity of the calorimeter is 12.1J/K. From these data calculate ΔH for the process. CuSO4 (1 M) + 2KOH (2 M) → Cu(OH)2(s) + K2SO4(0.5 M)
Assume the specific heat and density of the solution after mixing are the same as those of pure water.
