In lab we determined the heat capacity of a calorimeter. The question is how would the heat capacity of the calorimeter be affected if the NaOH solution had been at 25 degrees Celsius and the HCl solution had been at 22 degrees Celsius when the two solutions were mixed? Would the results have been too high or too low? Explain. Our solutions in class were of the same temperature.
