5.04 x 10-3 mole of a compound is added to 41.0 g of water in a styrofoam cup and stirred until it dissolves. The temperature of the solution changes from 23.460 C to 23.420 C. What is the heat of solution of the compound expressed in kJ/mol? Assume the specific heat of the solution is 4.18 J/g C.


Expert Answer

Step 1


Mass of water = 41.0g.

Temperature change = 23.4600C – 23.4200C
