I plan on mixing CuSO4 and Iron in water and I know that for calorimetry you use deltaE=mCdeltaT but I am unsure of how this would work with a single replacement reaction in water? What would be necessary to be able to obtain the overall heat of the reaction BY LAB not theoretical
To make more clear what I am trying to ask (sorry for not asking clearly) is:
Would it give me the correct heat of reaction if I put Iron and CuSO4 in water...recorded the change in temperature and used DE=mCDT?
But once I find DeltaE don't I have to do something else to find DeltaH like divide by the number of moles of reactant or something like that I forget??? This is where my confusion is greatest..
