q=mC(T2-T1) vs q=C(T2-T1)

As an example, problem 8.23 says: A calorimeter was calibrated with an electric heater, which supplied 22.5 kJ of energy as heat to the calorimeter and increased the temperature of the calorimeter and its water bath from 22.45 degrees celsius to 23.97 degrees celsius. What is the heat capacity of th...

Re: Error on 8.63c

Yup! You're correct. I made a post asking the same thing, and here's what Chem_Mod replied: "This error, as well as others, can be found in the Solutions Manual Errors document located on the course website." Hope that helps!

There is an error in the Solutions Manual on question 8.63 (c.)

Writing simply to help, in the solutions manual it states that for 8.63 (c.), the value for K2S(aq) is -417.5 kJ per mole, however, based on the textbook, it should actually be -471.5 kJ. So your answer should actually be -38.72 kJ. :)

Re: Hess' Law [ENDORSED]

You are right that when we make changes to reactions we need to change the enthalpy, but that is only true if the change affects the whole reaction. In relation to your example, let me demonstrate with problem 8.57. Here, one of the equations we need to balance is H2(g)+O2(g)---->H2O(l). We are told...

kJ vs. kJ per mole?

I have currently worked through problems 8.57, 8.59, 8.61, and 8.63 (part a), and they all seem like they are asking for the same thing- the standard reaction enthalpy. However, I don't understand then why the answer in 8.57 and 8.59 is in kJ per mole and the answer for 8.61 and 8.63 (just looking a...

Eq. 20?

While reading through Standard Enthalpies of Formation (8.17), I ran across an example that asked us to reference back to something called Eq. 20. ("Use Eq. 20 and the procedure set out in example 8.10..." - top of pg 297). Does anyone know what it is, or where I can find it?
