### Finding heat(q)

Are all the equations used to find $\mathit{q}$ , such as $\mathit{q}=C\Delta T$ , $\mathit{q}= mC_{s}\Delta T$ , and $\mathit{q}= nC_{s}\Delta T$ all just used interchangeably depending on the information provided or there certain cases where one will give you a better, or maybe more accurate answer than the rest?

It just depends on the information you're given
If they give you moles, for example, you would in most cases just use n and not convert to grams because the estimation would throw off your answer

I think in our situation it is based upon the information presented to us in the question.

### Re: Finding heat(q)

yes, depends on which is best suited to the question

Return to “Reaction Enthalpies (e.g., Using Hess’s Law, Bond Enthalpies, Standard Enthalpies of Formation)”
