  2. -q = dH ( dH = change in enthalpy Kj/mol)

    Use q=mc(Tf-Ti) and then convert to deltaH

    q=mc(Tf-Ti)

    q =?
    c= 4.814 J/g*C use specific heat of water since its in aqueous sol and we are not told differently

    m= total mass= mass KBr + mass water
    mass KBr= 5.0 g
    *mass of water from density =1g/mL so
    (25.0ml) (1g/ml)=25.0g water
    m = 25.0g water + 5.0 g KBr = 30.0g

    Tf-Ti= 18.1 - 25.0 = -6.9C

    q= (30g) (4.184 J/gC)(-6.9C)
    q= -1443 J

    -q = delta H kJ/mol KBr

    dH= (-q Joules)( 1 kJ/1000 Joules) / mol KBr

    *mol KBr = (5.0 g KBr)(1mol KBr) /119g KBr)= 0.042 mol KBr

    dH = -(-1443 J) (1kJ/1000J)/ 0.042 mol KBr)

    dH= 34.4 kJ/mol KBr
