Calculate the heat energy released when 15.0 g of liquid mercury at 25.00 °C is converted to solid mercury at its melting point.
Constants for mercury at 1 atm
heat capacity of Hg(l) 28.0 J/(mol⋅K)
melting point 234.32 K
enthalpy of fusion 2.29 kJ/mol
qp= _____________ kJ

Expert Answer

Step 1

given data as follows:


Image Transcriptionclose

heat capacity of Hg()=28.0 J/(mol-K) melting point 234.32 k enthalapy of fusion=2.29 kJ /mol

Step 2

To calculate the number of moles is mass of substance divided by molar mass of substance.

mass of mercury molar mass of mercury moles of mercury here, mass of mercury 15g molar mass of mercury 200.59g /mol 15g 200.59 g/mol moles of mercury 0.07477mol

Step 3

To determine the heat released on cooling liquid mercury fr...
