    Work in groups on these problems. You should try to answer the questions without referring to your textbook. If you get stuck, try asking another group for help.

    Q1

    A 295 g aluminum engine part at an initial temperature of 3.00°C absorbs 85.0 kJ of heat. What is the final temperature of the part? ( c of Al = 2.42 J/g * K)

    Q2

    A 27.7 g sample of ethylene glycol loses 688 J of heat. What was the initial temperature of the ethylene glycol if the final temperature is 32.5°C ( c of ethylene glycol = 2.42 J/g *K)

    Q3

    When 165 mL of water at 22°C is mixed with 85mL of water at 82°C, what is the final temperature? (assume d of water = 1.00 g/mL)

    Q4

    An unknown volume of water at 18.2°C is added to 24.4 mL of water at 35.0°C. If the final temperature is 23.5°C, what was the unknown volume? (assume d of water = 1.00 g/mL)

    Q5

    A 505 g piece of copper tubing is heated to 99.9°C and placed in an insulated vessel containing 59.8 g of water at 24.8°C. What is the final temperature of the system?

    Q6
