A calorimeter contains 20.0 of water at 12.5 . When 2.20 of (a substance with a molar mass of 59.0 ) is added, it dissolves via the reaction and the temperature of the solution increases to 27.5 .

Calculate the enthalpy change, , for this reaction per mole of .

Assume that the specific heat and density of the resulting solution are equal to those of water [4.18 and 1.00 ] and that no heat is lost to the calorimeter itself, nor to the surroundings.

Express the change in enthalpy in kilojoules per mole to three significant figures.
