Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Jarrod on Wednesday, November 3, 2010 at 11:45pm.

Mg(s) + 2 HCl(aq) --> MgCl2(aq) + H2 (g) DeltaH= -4.6x10^2 kJ

How much heat is evolved when 0.598 g of Mg are dissolved in excess HCl?

I'm not sure how to go about this problem. What I thought to do was:

0.598 g x 1 mol Mg/24.31 g Mg x 2 mol HCl/ 1 mol Mg x 36.46 g HCl/ 1 mol HCl = 1.79 g HCl
and from here I am not sure what to do. Somehow I need to incorporate the DeltaH into a formula, I believe.
