Question: a chemical engineer placed 1500 g of a hydrocarbon in...

Question details

A chemical engineer placed 1.500 g of a hydrocarbon in the bomb of a calorimeter. The bomb was immersed in 2.550 L of water and the sample was burned. The water temperature rose from 20.00°C to 23.55°C. If the calorimeter (excluding the water) had a heat capacity of 403 J/K, what was the heat released (qV) per gram of hydrocarbon? (d for water = 1.00 g/mL; c for water = 4.184 J/°C.
