# Calorimetry

posted by .

A calorimeter contains 21.0 mL of water at 12.0 degress Celsius. When 2.40g of X (a substance with a molar mass of 50.0 g/mol ) is added, it dissolves via the reaction
X(s)+H2O(l) --> X (aq)

and the temperature of the solution increases to 29.5 degress celsius.
Calculate the enthalpy change, H , for this reaction per mole of X .

Assume that the specific heat and density of the resulting solution are equal to those of water [4.18 J/(g* degress celsius and 1.00 g/mL ] and that no heat is lost to the calorimeter itself, nor to the surroundings.

Please note that we don't do students' homework for them. Our tutors try to give you the information to help you complete your assignment on your own. If there's not a tutor with this specialty online right now, be sure to go back into your textbook or use a good search engine. http://hanlib.sou.edu/searchtools/

Once YOU have come up with attempted answers to YOUR questions, please re-post and let us know what you think. Then someone here will be happy to comment on your thinking.

thats not really helpful to students who need chistry help..at least the tudors will give you a generic format to get you started. saying you don't do homework doesnt benfit anyone..you have wasted our time
