high purtity benzoic acid (C6H5COOH; ^Hrxn for combustion is -3227kJ/mol) is used as a standard for calibrating bomb calorimeters. A 1.221g sample burns in a calorimeter(heat capacity=1365J/C) that contains exactly 1.270kg of H2O. What temperature change was observed?

1. Calculate mols benzoic acid used.
Convert delta H/mol to delta H/mols benzoic acid used. I'll call that q.
1365 J/C x Y degrees = q.
Solve for Y. Don't forget to keep the units straight. The calorimeter constant is given in J/C while the benzoic acid delta H is in kJ/mol.
