### How many calories are required to raise the temperature of 75.0 g of water from 20C to 50C?

• A.

2250 cal

• B.

3750 cal

• C.

75.0 cal

A. 2250 cal
Explanation
To calculate the calories required to raise the temperature of water, we can use the formula: Q = mcΔT, where Q is the heat energy, m is the mass of water, c is the specific heat capacity of water, and ΔT is the change in temperature. Given that the mass of water is 75.0 g and the change in temperature is 50°C - 20°C = 30°C, we can substitute these values into the formula. The specific heat capacity of water is approximately 1 cal/g°C. Therefore, Q = (75.0 g)(1 cal/g°C)(30°C) = 2250 cal. Hence, 2250 cal is the correct answer.

### The temperature of a 6.0-g sample of glass changed from 20C to 45C when it absorbed 550 J of heat. What is the specific heat of this glass sample?

• A.

C0.27 J/gpC

• B.

3.7 J/gp

• C.

2300 J/gpC

B. 3.7 J/gp
Explanation
The specific heat of a substance is the amount of heat energy required to raise the temperature of 1 gram of that substance by 1 degree Celsius. In this question, the glass sample absorbed 550 J of heat and its temperature changed by 25 degrees Celsius. To find the specific heat, we can use the formula Q = mcΔT, where Q is the heat energy absorbed, m is the mass of the substance, c is the specific heat, and ΔT is the change in temperature. Rearranging the formula, we have c = Q / (m * ΔT). Plugging in the values, c = 550 J / (6.0 g * 25 °C) = 3.7 J/g°C. Therefore, the specific heat of the glass sample is 3.7 J/g°C.

### The enthalpy of a system is the same as its:

• A.

Specific heat.

• B.

Heat of combustion.

• C.

Heat content.

C. Heat content.
Explanation
The enthalpy of a system refers to the total heat content of the system, including both the internal energy and the work done by or on the system. It is a measure of the energy stored within the system, and is independent of the system's mass or size. Specific heat, on the other hand, is the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of a unit mass of a substance by a certain amount. Heat of combustion is the amount of heat released during a combustion reaction. Therefore, the correct answer is "heat content" as it encompasses the total energy stored within the system.

### When your body is warmed by an electric blanket during the winter, this process is said to be

• A.

Endothermic.

• B.

Exothermic.

• C.

Isothermic.

A. Endothermic.
Explanation
When your body is warmed by an electric blanket during the winter, it is considered endothermic because the blanket is providing heat to your body, causing your body temperature to increase. Endothermic refers to a process or reaction that absorbs heat from its surroundings. In this case, the electric blanket absorbs heat from its source (electricity) and transfers it to your body, resulting in warming.

### A student mixes two water solutions with an initial temperature of 25.0C to form a final solution with a mass of 65.0 g at 30.0C. What is the heat change, in kJ, for this reaction?

• A.

325 kJ

• B.

272 kJ

• C.

1.36 kJ

C. 1.36 kJ
Explanation
The heat change for a reaction can be calculated using the equation Q = mcΔT, where Q is the heat change, m is the mass of the solution, c is the specific heat capacity of water, and ΔT is the change in temperature. In this case, the mass of the final solution is given as 65.0 g and the change in temperature is 30.0C - 25.0C = 5.0C. The specific heat capacity of water is approximately 4.18 J/g°C. Plugging these values into the equation, we get Q = (65.0 g)(4.18 J/g°C)(5.0C) = 1361 J. Converting this to kJ, we get 1.36 kJ. Therefore, the heat change for this reaction is 1.36 kJ.

### Given the equation Si(s) + 2Cl2(g) ------>SiCl2(g) ------>SiCl2(l) + 687 kJ, how much heat is produced when 106 g of Cl2 react?

• A.

513 kJ

• B.

360 kJ

• C.

180 kJ

A. 513 kJ
Explanation
In this chemical reaction, 1 mole of Si reacts with 2 moles of Cl2 to produce 1 mole of SiCl2. The given equation states that 687 kJ of heat is produced in this reaction. To find the amount of heat produced when 106 g of Cl2 react, we need to convert the mass of Cl2 to moles. The molar mass of Cl2 is 70.90 g/mol, so 106 g of Cl2 is equal to 1.49 moles. Since the reaction ratio is 2 moles of Cl2 to 687 kJ of heat, we can set up a proportion to find the amount of heat produced when 1.49 moles of Cl2 react. Solving the proportion, we find that the amount of heat produced is approximately 513 kJ.

### Which of the following statements is true?

• A.

^Hfus^Hsolid

• B.

^Hfus^Hsolid

• C.

^Hsolid is always positive.

B. ^Hfus^Hsolid
Explanation
This statement is true because the symbol "^H" represents the enthalpy change, and in this case, it refers to the enthalpy of fusion (Hfus) and the enthalpy of solidification (Hsolid). The "^Hfus" symbol followed by "^Hsolid" indicates that the enthalpy change of fusion is equal in magnitude but opposite in sign to the enthalpy change of solidification. This means that when a substance melts (undergoes fusion), it absorbs a certain amount of heat energy, and when it solidifies, it releases the same amount of heat energy. Therefore, the enthalpy change of fusion is equal to the negative of the enthalpy change of solidification.

### How much heat, in kJ, is required to melt 54.0 g of ice at 0C into water at 0C if ^Hfus for water = 6.01 kJ/mol?

• A.

0.111 kJ

• B.

325 kJ

• C.

18.0 kJ

C. 18.0 kJ
Explanation
The correct answer is 18.0 kJ because to calculate the heat required to melt the ice, we need to use the formula Q = m * ^Hfus, where Q is the heat, m is the mass of the ice, and ^Hfus is the enthalpy of fusion. Plugging in the values, we get Q = 54.0 g * (6.01 kJ/mol / 18.0 g/mol) = 18.0 kJ.

### How much heat is required to convert 9.00 g of water at 100C into steam at 100C, if ^Hvap for water = 40.7 kJ/mol?

• A.

20.4 kJ

• B.

366 kJ

• C.

18.0 kJ

A. 20.4 kJ
Explanation
The heat required to convert a substance from one phase to another is given by the formula Q = m * ΔH, where Q is the heat, m is the mass, and ΔH is the enthalpy change. In this case, we are converting water at 100C into steam at 100C. The enthalpy change for vaporization of water is given as 40.7 kJ/mol. We are given the mass of water as 9.00 g. To find the heat required, we need to convert the mass to moles by dividing by the molar mass of water, which is approximately 18 g/mol. So, 9.00 g / 18 g/mol = 0.50 mol. Now we can calculate the heat using Q = 0.50 mol * 40.7 kJ/mol = 20.4 kJ. Therefore, the correct answer is 20.4 kJ.

### If the molar heat of solution of NH4NO3 is 25.7 kJ/mol, how much heat (in kJ) would be required to dissolve 20.0 g of NH4NO3 in water?

• A.

0.250 kJ

• B.

514 kJ

• C.

6.43 kJ

C. 6.43 kJ
Explanation
The molar heat of solution of NH4NO3 is given as 25.7 kJ/mol. To calculate the heat required to dissolve 20.0 g of NH4NO3 in water, we need to convert the mass of NH4NO3 to moles. The molar mass of NH4NO3 is 80.04 g/mol. Therefore, the number of moles of NH4NO3 is 20.0 g / 80.04 g/mol = 0.2499 mol. Finally, we can calculate the heat required using the formula: heat = molar heat of solution * number of moles = 25.7 kJ/mol * 0.2499 mol = 6.43 kJ.
