It was pointed out that mass and energy are alternate aspects of a single entity called massenergy. The relationship between these two physical quantities is Einstein's equation, E = mc2, where E is energy, m is mass, and c is the speed of light. In a combustion experiment, it was found that 10.965 g of hydrogen molecules combined with 87.000 g of oxygen molecules to form water and released 1.554 × 103 kJ of heat. Use Einstein's equation to calculate the corresponding mass change in this process,

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I haven't thoroughly studied physics yet. I think this is better off in the physics section. But I think you're meant to convert the mass into kg's first before doing anything else. And the kilojoules to joules.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01.554 × 103 kJ ? Is it 1.554 x 10^3 kJ.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i converted it to J thats why its 1.554*10^6 in my attempt

Azteck

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0SO it's this? \[1.554\times 10^6 \times \frac{ kgm^x }{ s^x }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no i cant get the solution it would be 0 points after that :)

Azteck

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we are just trying to do some conversion this is Chapter 2 should be some basic stuff

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Man, heat of combustion keeps popping up in my head for some reason.

sat_chen

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so would you do something like mole so 12.096/1.008 and 96/16 and get the value in mole form

Azteck
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm not sure but it's worth a try. because heat of combustion is sort of what this experiment sort of is. Because you got your energy/heat released and then you got your mass changes and stuff.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so far we have just learned how to name basic stuff, learning to name polyatomic ions etc emperical formula stuff like that really easy stuff i aced all the other problem but this one is tripping me up

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Just plug into the equation E = mc^3. The energy is given, you know the speed of light. Calculate mass

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so would you dw:1359339344388:dw

sat_chen

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and square the speed of light

sat_chen

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then change from g to kg by dividing by 1000 or would you conver to mole

Azteck

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ANd then I think you might subtract what you get from the mass of the oxygen and hydrogen molecules...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so heres what im doing right now since m = e/c^2

sat_chen

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0first i change the 10.965/1.001 and 87/16 to convert it to mole

sat_chen

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then i divide 1554000/2.9*10^8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\frac{1.554\times 10^6}{(3\times 10^8)^2}=.1727 \times 10^{10} kg\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yea ive done that before is that just it?

sat_chen

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then you convert from kg to g?

Mertsj

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That's what I think it is. Because the equation tells you how much mass is needed to produce that much energy.

sat_chen

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hold on i forgot to square

Mertsj

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[.1727 \times 10^{10}kg=.1727 \times 10^{7}g = 1.727 \times 10^{8}g\]
