Imagine that you dissolve 10.0 g of a mixture of NaNO3 and KF in 100.0 g of water and find that the temperature rises by 2.22 °C. Using the following data, calculate the mass of each compound in the original mixture. Assume that the specific heat of the solution is 4.18 J>1 g °C2
NaNO31s2 S NaNO31aq2 ΔH = + 20.4 kJ>mol
KF1s2 S KF1aq2 ΔH = - 17.7 kJ>mol
