A 2.56g sample of anthracene, C14H10, was burned to heat an aluminum calorimeter (mass=945 g). The calorimeter contained 1.50 L of water with an initial temperature of 20.5 C and a final temperature of 34.3 C.

a) Calculate the molar heat of combustion of anthracene.

2. Relevant equations

n=m/M

Q=mcΔt

3. The attempt at a solution

Did I do the steps correctly? Did I include the correct sig figs? How would I convert my final answer to J/mol instead of kJ/mol? Thanks! If you need me to type out the work instead of using pictures I can!
