Molar heat of combustion question!

posted by .

Calculate the molar heat of combustion of paraffin, expressed in units of kJ/mol. First calculate the thermal energy released when one mole of parafin burns) because one mole of parafin (c25h52) has a mass of 325g, the molar heat of combustion will be 352 times greater than the heat of combustion expressed in units of kJ/g.

Help is much appreciated.
