When 1219 J of heat energy is added to 40.4 g of ethanol, C2H6O, the temperature increases by 12.3 °C. Calculate the molar heat capacity of C2H6O. (In J)

  • chemistry -

    q = mass ethanol x specific heat x (Tfinal-Tinitial). This will give you specific heat in J/g. J/g x molar mass will give J/mol.
