Calculate the heat of combustion of this wax in kJ/mol. How much energy is produced per carbon? What is the limiting reagent?

I have the Q=m*C*deltaT equation to be 10460.45 joules using 100.1 grams C25H52, 25 degrees C, and 4.18 J/gC. I don't know how to find how much energy is produced per carbon and what the limiting reagent is?
