Chemistry

At constant volume, the heat combustion of a particular compound is -3447.0 KJ/mol. When 1.205 g of this compound (molar mass = 119.94 g/mol) was burned in a bomb calorimeter, the temperature of the calorimeter (including its contents) rose by 5.007 degrees C. What is the heat capacity (calorimeter constant) of the calorimeter?

I need this explained to me very well! I have tried going by other explanations online, but they are not helping! I keep doing it wrong and getting the wrong answer. I have no idea how to solve it, so I need in depth help, please :).
