In a coffee cup calorimeter, P is constant and q = ∆H 16.69 g Fe is heated to 100.0° C and dropped into 100.0 g water initially at 15.0°C. If the final temperature of the water is 16.5° C, calculate the specific heat of the Fe. 6-3 Chapter 6 Thermochemistry -qFe = qwater -sm∆T(Fe) = sm∆T(water) -s(16.69 g)(16.5° C - 100.0° C) = (4.18 J/g ° C)(100.0 g)(16.5° C - 15.0° C) s = 0.45 J/g ° C 0....
