Can someone explain how to do #23 " a calorimeter was calibrated with an electric heater, which supplied 22.5kJ of energy as heat to the calorimeter and increased the temperature of the calorimeter and its water bath from 22.45 C to 23.97 C. What is the heat capacity of the calorimeter?" Thanks in advance!
I'll try a bit little more specific if it helps. So we use the equation which is the equation for heat transfer for a calorimeter. So then we move around to equation to get which is the heat capacity of a calorimeter. Lastly, just plug in the given variables and you should get 14802 J/C if I did my math correctly.
