KCl(s) → K+(aq) + Cl‾ (aq)

Solid KCl dissolves as shown in the above equation. A 6.60 g sample of KCl was dissolved in 42.3 g of water. The initial temperature of the water was 21.90°C. After the compound dissolved, the temperature of the water was 10.20°C. Assume the heat was completely absorbed from the water and no heat was absorbed by the reaction container or the surroundings. Calculate the heat of solution of KCl in kJ/mol. The specific heat of water is 4.184 J/g·°C. (Do not take the added mass of the KCl into account when calculating q for the solution.)
