Thermo Practice Problems #2 Clemens 1. 2.896g of methanol (CH 3 OH) was burned in a bomb calorimeter with a heat capacity of 2.56kJ/ o C. The bomb was immersed in 1900.g of water. After combustion, the temperature of the calorimeter and water rose by 6.33 o C. Calculate the heat of combustion of methanol in kJ/mol. The specific heat of water is 4.18J/g o C. 2. How much copper metal(c = 0.385J/g o C) in grams at an initial temperature of 355 o C would be required to vaporize 175mL of water at 100. o C. The heat of vaporization for water is 44.0kJ/mol.

Unformatted text preview: 3. When 2moles of magnesium reacts with oxygen, magnesium oxide is produced and 1204kJ of heat is released. a) write a balanced, thermochemical equation for this. b) Is this reaction endothermic or exothermic? c) How much heat is produced when 2.4g of magnesium reacts with excess oxygen? d) How much heat is produced when 2.5L of oxygen at 765Torr and 25 o C reacts with excess Mg? e) Using your answer from d , how much water could be heated from 25 o C to 75 o C?...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
