Delta Hc

Postby nelms6678 » Thu Mar 15, 2018 12:14 pm

An exam question asked for the value of delta H(c) with given values of 1.000 grams tropinone, heat capacity 25.950kj/C, and a temp increase from 25.262 C to 25.993.
The equations used were q = (Cv)(delta T) and then delta H(c) = q(rxn)/mols burned

What are these two equations?

I believe that the first equation q = (Cv)(delta T) stems from the equation q=n(C)(deltaT T). The first equation does not include mole because the C value given is in terms of kj/C and so I believe that you can assume that the moles were already taken into account. I am unsure of where the second equation is from.
