Under constant-volume conditions the heat of combustion of glucose is 15.57 kJ/g. A 2.500g sample of glucose is burned in a bomb calorimeter. The temperature of the calorimeter increses from 20.55 C to 23.25 C. What is the total heat capacity of the calorimeter?
Which equations would you use to solve this problem?
q = C*delta T
You know q = 15.57 kJ/g and you know you start with 2.5 g. You know delta T.
