Solution Summary

The response clearly shows the formulas and calculation to arrive at the answer.

In an experiment, a certain amount of steam was allowed to mix with a known mass of cold water whose temperature is known. The change in temperature was noted. From the data obtained, calculatethe heat of vaporization of water.
Weight of calorimeter = 100.0g
Specific heat of calorimeter = 0.1cal/g°C
Mass of water =

1. In earlier times, ethyl ether was commonly used as an anesthetic. It is, however, highly flammable. When 5.0 mL of ethyl ether C4H10 (l), (d=0.714 g/mL) is burned in a bomb calorimeter, thetemperature rises from 23.5°C to 39.7. The calorimeter heat capacity is 10.24 kJ/°C. What is heat released when 5.00 mL ethyl ether is

Procedure:
1. Take a calorimeter from the glassware shelf and place it on the workbench.
2. Take a balance from the tools shelf and drop it on thecalorimeter. Record the mass of the empty calorimeter.
3. Take a thermometer from the tools shelf and drop it onto thecalorimeter. Record thetemperature of the calorimete

Assume you use calorimetry to calculatethe specific heat capacity of a 125.24 g piece of unknown metal. You intially heat the metal to 100.0 °C in boiling water. You then drop the chunk of metal into a calorimeter containing 47.22 g of water at 19.7 °C. After closing and stiring the calorimeter thoroughly, the metal andwater
