when a 0.4-g almond sample is burned the heat gained by the water is 7525.4 J and the temperature of the water increased from 24 C to 58 C what was the mass of the water in grams?
a. 50
b. 100
c. 45
d. 52.9

  • chemistry -

    q = mass water x specific heat water x (Tfinal-Tinitial).

  • chemistry -

    the answer I got was 52.9... right??
