Metal: Aluminum
Mass of metal: 27.776 g
Volume of water in the calorimeter: 26.0 mL
Initial temperature of water in calorimeter: 25.3 °C
Temperature of hot water and metal in hot water bath: 100.5 °C
Final temperature reached in the calorimeter: 31.6 °C
1. Calculate the energy change (q) of the surroundings (water) using the enthalpy equation
qwater = m × c × ΔT.
We can assume that the specific heat capacity of water is 4.18 J / (g × °C) and the density of water is 1.00 g/mL.
The water has absorbed the heat of the metal. So, qwater = qmetal
