   # In a bomb calorimeter, the reaction vessel is surrounded by water that must be added for each experiment. Since the amount of water is not constant from experiment to experiment, the mass of water must be measured in each case. The heat capacity of the calorimeter is broken down into two parts: the water and the calorimeter components. If a calorimeter contains 1.00 kg water and has a total heat capacity of 10.84 kJ/ °C, what is the heat capacity of the calorimeter components? ### Chemistry: An Atoms First Approach

## In a bomb calorimeter, the reaction vessel is surrounded by water that must be added for each experiment. Since the amount of water is not constant from experiment to experiment, the mass of water must be measured in each case. The heat capacity of the calorimeter is broken down into two parts: the water and the calorimeter components. If a calorimeter contains 1.00 kg water and has a total heat capacity of 10.84 kJ/°C, what is the heat capacity of the calorimeter components?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: Heat capacity of the component calorimeter has to be calculated.

Concept introduction

Calorimeter: The apparatus used to measure heat that involved in chemical reactions.

Specific heat capacity: The specific heat capacity defined as quantity of heat required to raise temperature of the substance per unit mass.

Heat capacity: The heat capacity defined as quantity of heat required to raise temperature of the system by one degree.

Unit: Joule/0C

Formula:  C =EΔT

Here,   E -Total energy

ΔT - Change in temperature

### Explanation of Solution

Explanation

Total heat capacity of the calorimeter contains water is 10.84KJ/0C.

Total heat capacity of the calorimeter contains water are recorded as shown above.

To calculate specific heat of water.

Given: Specific heat of water is 4.18J/0C/gram.

4.18J/0C/gram =4.18kJ/0CkJ

To calculate heat capacity of calorimeter contains water.

Heat capacity of calorimeter contains 1.00Kg water =1.00 kg×4.18 kg0Ckg

= 4
