Question

Suppose you place 0.0400 g of magnesium chips in a coffee-cup calorimeter and then add 100.0 mL of 1.00 M HCl. The reaction that occurs is

Mg(s) + 2 HCl(aq) → H2(g) + MgCl2(aq)

The temperature of the solution increases from 21.66 °C (294.81 K) to 23.46 °C (296.61 K). What is the enthalpy change for the reaction per mole of Mg? Assume a specific heat capacity of the solution is 4.20 J/g∙K and the density of the HCl solution is 1.00 g/mL.
