The combustion of 0.0222g of isooctane vapor, C8H18(g), at constant pressure raises the temperature of a calorimeter 0.400 degrees C. The heat capacity of the calorimeter and water combined is 2.48kJ/degrees C. Find the molar heat of combustion of gaseous isooctane.

The balanced cchemical equation is:
C8H18(g)+12(1/2)O2(g) -> 8CO2(g)+9H2O(l)
