4.15 7th edition

Postby paytonm1H » Sat Feb 09, 2019 9:56 pm

In the final step pf 4.15 in the solutions manual is said
-2000J=(-4.184 J/Cg)(800g)(deltaT)

I understand they are using the q(water) = -q(zinc oxidation) = mCp(deltaT)

Where are they getting the 800g water from?

The density of water is 1g/mL and the question states that there are 800mL of solution. You can assume the contribution to density from dissolved solids is negligible and therefore that the weight of the water in question is 800g.
