Unformatted text preview: (As a footnote, this type of calculation, and an awareness of the greenhouse gas status of carbon dioxide, is being used to encourage moving from coal-fired steam generation to natural-gas-fired steam generation. Unfortunately methane (the main constituent of natural gas) is itself an even more potent greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide, and its use can be accompanied by a small but significant leakage into the atmosphere). 2) When 1.50 g of magnesium metal is allowed to react with 200 mL of 6.00 M aqueous HCl in a bomb calorimeter, the temperature rises from 25.0 C to 42.9 C. The heat capacity of the calorimeter (without the aqueous HCl or the magnesium) is 776 J/C. Assume that the specific heat of the final solution is the same as that of water and that the density of the solution is 1.00 g/mL. Calculate the heat of reaction per mole of magnesium. State any other assumptions or simplifications that you make....
