A 14.235-gram silver sample was heated to 98.1 C in a hot water bath, Te metal was then placed in a calorimeter containing 45.1 mL of water (density = 1.00 g/ml) at a Temperature of 24.8 c. The final temperature of the water and metal sample was recorded as 26.2 C.
A Determine the Temperature change for the water contained in the calorimeter.
My answer: 1.4 C
B. Calculate the heat absorbed by the water in the calorimeter.
My answer: 63 cal
C. Determine the Temperature change for the metal sample.
My answer 71.9 C
D. Calculate the specific heat of the metal sample. Assume that the heat given away by the metal equals the heat absorbed by the water in the calorimeter.
My Answer: 0.061 cal/g*C
E Calculate the percent error for the determination of the specific heat of silver. (which is0.0562cal/g*C)
My answer: 8.5%
If anyone can help me check to see if these ones are correct and if it is not would you be so great to explain to me how to do it and why? that would be great and very appreciated. Thank you.
