The complete combusion of 0.5763 grams of glucose in a bomb calorimeter (Cbomb = 6.20 kJ/degrees C) raises the temperature of the calorimeter by 1.45 degrees C. what is the food value of glucose in calories per gram? (Hint: remember 1 Cal = 4.184 kJ)


i do not know how to find the calories per gram, help?

  • Chemistry. -

    calories=mass(L) where L is calories/gram for glucose.

    HEAT=Cbomb*1.45=mass*L

    L=1.45*cbomb/mass
