A researcher studying the nutritional value of a new candy places a 4.90 gram sample of the candy inside a bomb calorimeter and combusts it in excess oxygen. The observed temperature increase is 2.75 degrees Celsius. If the heat capacity of the calorimeter is 29.50 kJ - K^-1, how many nutritional calories are there per gram of the candy? Answer in cal/g


i got 6.02 kJ k^-1 ... if that's correct how can i convert this answer to cal/g?
