Can any1 help me with this?
In a coffee-cup calorimeter, 50ml of 0.1M AgNO3 and 50ml of 0.1M HCl are mixed to yield the following reaction:
Ag+(aq) + Cl-(aq) --> AgCl(s)
The 2 solutions were initially at 22.6 degrees C and the final temperature is 23.4 degrees C. Calculate the heat that accompanies this reaction in kJ/mol of AgCl formed. Assume that the combined solution has a mass of 100g and a specific heat capacity of 4.18 J/degrees C g.
I used q = ms(detaT) = 100 x 4.18 x 0.8 = 334.4J. I then thought since there are 0.01 mols altogether, then that means for 0.01 moles it's 334.4J, so 1 mole is 33440J. but that's the wrong answer. I think it's the moles part that's wrong - i'm not sure if it's ok to find moles of AgNO3, moles of HCl and then just add them up...
then answer's -66kJ/mol
