Finding heat(q)

Postby David Sarkissian 1K » Mon Mar 11, 2019 5:29 pm

Are all the equations used to find , such as , , and 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.
