An unknown metal, heated to an unknown temperature until a liquid is dropped
into a calorimeter that has 250 ml of water. The water heats up from 22 degrees
Celcius to 29 degrees Celcius, at which point the temperature of the water and
metal are equal. How much energy in Kilojoules did the metal release?

  • Chemistry -

    q = mass water x specific heat water x delta T water.
    Note the correct spelling of celsius.
