ou place 100.0 g of a hot metal in 100.0 g of cold water. Which substance (metal or water) undergoes a larger temperature change? Why is this?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

To determine the substance that undergoes a larger temperature change when 100.0 g of a hot metal is placed in 100.0 of cold water.

Concept Introduction:

Metals are crystalline and have a strong metallic bond. These metals have ions which are present individually and having orbits surrounded by the electrons. Water in the liquid state has weak bonds that has a free flow of electrons.

Explanation

When the hot metal is placed inside the cold water there is a transformation of heat energy. Two kinds of reactions are exhibited in this process, one is the exothermic and the other is endothermic. The hot metal when place inside the cold water, the metal releases some heat to the surroundings and this makes the metal to undergo exothermic reaction.

The cold water absorbs the heat given by the metal substance and increases its temperature. So the water undergoes endothermic reaction...
