calorimeter problems

Postby Belle Calforda3f » Tue Feb 13, 2018 1:10 pm

when can we use just q=cdeltaT without moles or mass? does this apply to calorimeter problems?

Yes, for a bomb calorimeter problem, the equation for q is q=CdeltaT

You use this equation in problems regarding calibrating a calorimeter because there's no "mass" to take into account. Rather, it would be the specific heat of a single calorimeter.
