# Calculating Heat Of Combustion...

 P: 55 Hey, I need some help with the following question: A sample of 0.1964g of Quinone (C6 H4 02, Relative Molar Mass = 108.1) was burned in a bomb calorimeter that heas a heat capacity of 1.56 kJ/M. The temperature in the caolorimeter rose from 19.3 to 22.5 degrees celcius. (a) write a balanced equation for the complete combustion of quinone in oxygen to form water and CO2. Ok I'm pretty sure this is right: $$C_6 H_4 O_2 + 6O_2 \to 2H_2 O + 6CO_2$$ (b) Calculate the heat of combustion of quinone in kJ/g and kJ/mol. Not exactly sure how to apprach this bit.. Q = CMT where T is the difference in temp. M is the mass and C is the specific heat capcity, but I'm unsure how to apply this to the question. thanks in advance.
