Question

Zinc metal reacts with hydrochloric acid according to the following balanced equation.
Zn(s)+2HCl(aq)→ZnCl2(aq)+H2(g)
When 0.111 g of Zn(s) is combined with enough HCl to make 53.8 mL of solution in a coffee-cup calorimeter, all of the zinc reacts, raising the temperature of the solution from 22.0 ∘C to 24.0 ∘C.
Find ΔHrxn for this reaction as written. (Use 1.0 g/mL for the density of the solution and 4.18 J/g⋅∘C as the specific heat capacity.)

Step 1

Given the density and volume of the solution, mass of the solution can be calcuated as:

Step 2

Heat released in the reaction when 1 mole of Zn reacts is given as:

Step 3

Number of moles of z...
