Assume you can heat water with perfect insulation (all the heat from combustion of ethanol is transferred to water). What is the volume of ethanol required to heat 100 mL of water by 10 degrees C? (You will need to look up density of ethanol, specific heat capacity or water, and heat of combustion of ethanol.)
