How much heat (in Joules) is gained by the water when a chemical reaction takes place in 100.0 ml aqueous solution, has a temperature increase of 10.20°C and a specific heat capacity of 4.180 J/°Cg? [Hint: ignore any effects of the calorimeter and solve for qwater]
qwater = mass H2O x specific heat H2O x (Tfinal-Tinitial)
Note: Tfinal-Tinitial = delta T = 10.20 C.
