The heat capacity of a bomb calorimeter was determined by burning 6.79 g of methane (energy of combustion = −802 kJ/mol CH4)in the bomb. The temperature changed by 10.8∘C.
a. What is the heat capacity of the bomb?
b. A 12.6-g sample of acetylene (C2H2) produced a temperature increase of 16.9∘C in the same calorimeter. What is the energy of combustion of acetylene (in kJ/mol)?
