How to find delta H using calorimetry?? I know the answer but I m having trouble getting there!?
5.5 grams of C2H6 are burned in a bomb calorimeter with the heat of 4.96kJ/degree Celsius and holds 1000g of H20. the change in temperature is 11.34 which i solved and you use it for both q reaction and q surrounding

  1. What is the calorimeter constant. Is that the 4.96 J/K? Is that with or without the 1000 g H2O? Is the 1000 g H2O insie the bomb calorimetr? Why not show what you've done to work the problem and give the answer. Do you have confidence in the answer;i.e., is the answer from a friend or is it the text's answer?
