    Find the number of moles of Mg, then times that by the enthalpy change to get energy change
    so mol=mass/mr
    =0.8/24.3=0.0329mol

    0.0329*193.5=6.37kJ

    So now you are using 0.8g. (0.8/2.43)*46.3 will give you the new temp. increase.
    this gives me 15.8°C but the answer is 15.2 °C

    I think you might have typed it into your calculator wrong.

    got it now but why do this (0.8/2.43)*46.3 is there a formula to tell me to use this or what?

    No, there is no formula, I'm just using proportionality.

    Continuing down this path will get you the right result.

    Because you have (0.8/2.43) of the number of moles originally reacting now. So therefore since delta T is proportional to Q, which itself is proportional to the number of moles reacting delta T is proportional to number of moles reacting

    what do i do?

    6371J=m*4.18*delta T ????

    if i put 50 as m then i get an answer 2 times too big which is 30.4
    if i put 100 as m then i get the right answer as 15.2 but why?

    100, because you have 100g of solution
