Homework Help: Heat of Combustion

  1. Jun 18, 2006 #1
    I am needing help on some homework questions:

    A 2.200 g sample of quinone, C6H4O2, is burned in a bomb calorimeter whose total heat capacity is 7.854 kJ/ degrees C. The temperature of the calorimeter increases from 23.50 degrees C to 30.63 degrees C.

    1. What is the HEAT OF COMBUSTION PER GRAM of quinone? (in kJ/g)

    2. Per mole of quinone? (in kJ/mol)

    according to the rules in physics forum, we cant help those that didnt show their efforts. We are just guiding, not doing all the homework for you. you must at least show your way of calculations before we can help you.
