lemme start off with the problem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

15.3g of NaNO3 were disssolved in 100 g of water in a calorimeter. The temperature of the water dropped from 25 C to 21.56 C. Calculate delta H for the solution process

here's what i figure:

delta H = q

q = MCT

M = mass of water

C = specific heat of water

T = change in temp

so plug and chug should get me my answer ?

i dunno why but i think i need to incorporate the mass of my NaNO3 somewhere...

help me please
