A. Aluminum has a specific heat of 0.880 J/g-degree. How many joules are needed to heat 725g of aluminum from 20.0oC to 125.0oC ?
B. The delta H of combustion of C2H6 is 1541kJ/mole. How many kJ of energy result when 700.0g of C2H6 are combusted ?
A) Q = m*C*delta T
where, Q = heat
m = mass
C = specific hat capacity
delta T = T2 - T1
Q = 725*0.880*(125 - 20)
Q = 725 * 0.880 * 105 = 66990 J
Balanced equation is
2 C2H6 + 7 O2 ----> 4 CO2 + 6 H2O
number of moles of C2H6 = 700.0g / 30.07 g.mol^-1 = 23.3 mole
2 mole of C2H6 has delta H = 1541 kJ/mole so
23.3 mole of C2H6 will have delta H
= 23.3 mole of C2H6 *(1541 kJ/mole / 2 mole of C2H6)
Therefore, delta H for 700.0g of C2H6 will be 17952.7 kJ
