When 4.03 g of ammonium perchlorate (NH4ClO4) is dissolved in 120 g of water in a styrofoam calorimeter of negligible heat capacity, the temperature drops from 25.00 to 22.62 °C. Based on this observation, calculate q for the water and ΔH° for the process, assuming that the heat absorbed by the salt is negligible.

NH4ClO4(s) -----> NH4+(aq) + ClO4-(aq)

The specific heat of water is 4.184 J °C-1 g-1.

qH2O=

ΔH°=
