1. Zinc is often used to calibrate calorimeters because it undergoes a very sharp phase transition from the solid to the liquid at 419.5oC. Calculate the enthalpy change when 5 g of zinc metal is heated from 100oC to the point where the entire sample is melted. (The heat of fusion for zinc is 112.4 J/g and its specific heat capacity is 0.388 J/goC.)

2. A 235 gram block of iron is heated to 450 C and then is dropped into a coffee cup calorimeter containing 250 g of water at 25.0 C. What is the final temperature of the system to the nearest 0.1 C? (Assume all heat is transferred to the water)

Specific heat capacity of iron = 0.451 J/(g*C)

Specific heat capacity of water = 4.18 J/(g*C)
