(A). A reaction with a known q is performed in a bomb calorimeter and is found that 10.0 kj of heat is required to raise the temperature of the calorimeter by 2.15 degrees C. calculate the heat capacity of the calorimeter.
(B). When 1.00 g of C2H6(g) is burned in the bomb calorimeter from (A), the temperature rises from 22.00 degrees C to 33.13 degrees C. calculate q for the combustion of C2H6(g) as performed
Ccal x delta T = q
(mass x specific heat x delta T) + Ccal*delta T = q.
