  1. q is the amount of heat you will need to heat the 838 g water.
    q = mass H2O x specific heat H2O x (Tfinal-Tinitial)


    Do you have the heat of combustion? If not you will need to calculate it.
    2C2H6(g) + 7O2(g) ==> 4CO2(g) + 6H2O(l)
    dHrxn = (n*dHf products) - (n*dHf reactants)
    dHrxn is the heat of combustion.

    dHrxn/2 x mol = q
    Solve for mol. Remember to keep the units for dHrxn and q the same.
