use this equation to calculate the molar enthalpy change for a reaction
use this equation in related calculations.
Students will not be expected to recall the value of the specific heat capacity, c, of a substance.
The heat change, q, in a reaction is given by the equation q = mc∆T
where m is the mass of the substance that has a temperature change ∆T and a specific heat capacity c.
