Heat of Reaction

  • #1
I did a calorimetry lab and here's my result
[PLAIN]http://img230.imageshack.us/img230/2953/fullscreencapture111420.jpg [Broken]

I'm supposed to find the heat absorbed by the water in the calorimeter, assuming the density of the solution to be 1.0 g/mL

I kniow I have to use the equation
q-rxn-mass*specific heat *change in temp.

but how do i find the mass of water.
Please help me

If you have a measurement of water in milliliters, and they give you the density of 1.0 g/mL, you can assume that milliliters=grams. That should give you the mass of water.

I'm not sure what else you're asking, but we did a lab pretty similar to this not too long ago, so just lemme know if you need help!
