# Enthalpy Calculations for Solid Ammonium Nitrate

When a 3.88 g sample of solid ammonium nitrate dissolves in 60.0 g of water in a coffee-cup calorimeter, the temperature drops from 23.0 degrees Celsius to 18.4 degrees Celsius. Calculate delta H in kJ per mole of NH4NO3 for the solution process. Assume the specific heat of the solution is the same as that of pure water.

Please provide a detailed explanation.
