Magnesium metal reacts with hydrochloric acid according to the following equation.Mg(s) + 2HCl(aq) MgCl2(aq) + H2(g) When 0.425 g of magnesium was added to 150.0 mL of 1.00 M HCl in a coffee-cup calorimeter the temperature of the solution increased from 24.5°C to 35.3°C. Given that the heat capacity of the calorimeter is 125 J/°C and that the density of the HCl solution is 1.00 g/mL, calculate the heat released per mole of magnesium.
