(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Estimate the amount of energy (in J) in a gallon of gasoline by imagining that there is about 4 eV of energy for every carbon atom.

3. The attempt at a solution

I don't know of any equations that would relate eV to J. But I do know that there are 6.022 x 10^23 atoms/mole.

How do I get started on this?
