8.00 g of aluminum at 200 degrees Celsius and 18.0 g of copper are dropped into 55.0 cm^3 of ethyl alcohol at 15 degrees Celsius. The temperature quickly comes to 24.0 degrees Celsius. What was the initial temperature of the copper?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com December 24, 2021, 5:07 pm ad1c9bdddf
Aluminum: 0.920 J/g.deg.C
Copper: 0.387 J/g.deg. C
Ethyl Alcohol: 2.45 J/gdeg.C
Density of Ethyl ...
This solution identifies a number of required calculations and takes the reader through each to determine the initial temperature of the copper.
