Calculations (show work for all calculations)

Aluminum Sample:

1. Calculate the change in temperature for the water caused by the addition of the aluminum by subtracting the initial temperature of the water from the final temperature of the water. ΔT = Tf - Ti (5 points)

47.0 C-17.0 C=30.0 C

2. Calculate the change in the metal’s temperature by subtracting the initial temperature of the aluminum from the final temperature of the aluminum. ΔT = Tf - Ti (5 points)

47.0 C-90.0 C=-43.0 C

3. Determine the mass of the water by using the water’s density (specific to the initial temperature) and the volume of the water. Remember, density = mass/volume. You can look up the density of the water at your specific temperature at http://www.ncsu.edu/chemistry/resource/H2Odensity_vp.htmﾧl. (5 points)

Mass=density*volume=0.9987779*75=75g

4. Use the equation: q = m(SH)ΔT to solve for the amount of heat gained by the
