Which of the two, benzoic acid and sucrose, has the largest heat of combustion and why? Can you look up the heats of combustion. I found -3226.9 kJ/mol for benzoic acid and -5637 kJ/mol for sucrose but you should look for yourself and confirm those numbers. Write the combusion...

H2O2 + Heat = H2O + O2 Would this be combustion or decomposition? Since the products are H2O and O2, I thought it would be combustion but then H2O can be decompose into H2O and O2 which would be decomposition.
