Thermochemistry : HeatCapacityLiq (4 Variations)

100 g of water (c=4.184 J/g. o C), 100 g of ethanol (c=2.46 J/g. o C), 100 g of carbon tetrachloride (c=0.861 J/g. o C), and 100 g of ethylene glycol (c=2.42 J/g. o C) at 50 o C were each placed into a separate coffee cup calorimeter and the temperature recorded. The temperature of the surroundings was 20 o C. After one hour the temperature of which substance would have changed by the largest amount? Assume that the rate of heat transfer from...
