A hydrocarbon sample was burned in a bomb calorimeter. The temperature of the calorimeter and the 1.00 kg of water rose from 20.45 °C to 23.65 °C. The heat capacity of the calorimeter, excluding the water, is 2.21 kJ/°C. Using this information, determine the heat released by the combustion.

  • CHEMISTRY -

    heat released to raise T of water + heat to raise T of calorimeter = total heat released.
    [mass water x specific heat water x delta T] + [2210 J/C x delta t] = q
