## Study Notes

### Specific Heat and Heat Capacity

• Specific heat of water: 4.18 J/(g·°C); wood: 1.97 J/(g·°C).
• With equal masses, water heats up less than wood when the same heat is added.
• Specific heat capacity is more useful than heat capacity because it is an intensive property, not dependent on sample size.

### Calorimetry Concepts

• Calorimeters measure heat changes during chemical reactions.
• An open ceramic mug allows energy exchange with surroundings, unlike an insulated mug with a lid.
• Heat capacity of a sample divided by mass in grams gives specific heat capacity.

### Heat Transfer Calculations

• When mixing 40.0 mL of 1.00 M H2SO4 with 80.0 mL of 1.00 M NaOH, the solution's temperature increases to 29.20°C; heat released is 4.62 kJ.
• A bomb calorimeter that starts at 28.50°C and cools to 27.45°C, absorbing heat, indicates 5,170 J of heat absorbed.
• Complete combustion of 0.600 g of a compound releases 24.0 kJ; final temperature of a 1.30 kg calorimeter initially at 25.5°C rises to 30.9°C.

### Measurement Units

• Specific heat capacity is expressed in J/(g·°C), J/(g·K), cal/(g·°C), cal/(g·K).

### Functionality of Calorimeters

• A basic coffee cup calorimeter uses the mass and specific heat of water and a thermometer to measure energy changes when substances are added.
