    \[CaCl _{2}\rightarrow Ca _{aq.}+2Cl _{aq.} ; DeltaHsoln=-82.8kj/mol\]

    ok using you balanced thermo equation we can pull out the conversion factor 1mole cacl2=82.8 kj Now we factor lable this bad boy, \[192 kj (\frac{1 mol CaCl_2}{82.8 kj})(\frac{111 g CaCl_2}{1 mole CaCl_2})=\]

    take 192 multiply it to the top of the fraction then divide it by the bottom of the raction till you get to the end and you will have your answer.

    okay i understand a bit better and the 111 came from the table of elements added up ca and cl2 right?

    Yea but i'm guessing there is a difference between the table i use compaired to the one the answer came from or a rounding error or something because I got 257.39 kj i think it was. This also could be a case were carring numbers gives us a slightly different answer. However thats how it should be set up you can look at the molar mass and see if its the same or slightly different off your peroidic table.

    thanks sorry for the wait its the same eq. but its asking for heat released if you prepeare 2.75L of 1.75 M [CaCl2 solution

    \[2.75 L (\frac{1.75 mol}{1 L})(\frac{82.8 kj}{1 mole})=\] It should look something like that but this one isn't working out and i'm getting tired. Is there anything that you left out in the question?
