A 2.2 g sample of quinone #C_6H_4O_2# was burned in a bomb calorimeter for which the total heat capacity is 7854 J/°C. The temperature of the calorimeter increased from 23.44 C to 30.57 °C. What is the molar heat of combustion of quinone (in kJ/mol)?
The molar heat of combustion of quinone is -2700 kJ/mol.
There are two heat transfers involved.
