Solution: Nitromethane (CH3NO2) burns in air to produce significant amounts of heat: 2 CH3NO2(l) + 3/2 O2(g) → 2 CO2(g) + 3 H2O(l) + N2(g); ΔH˚rxn = -1418 kJ.How much heat is produced by the complete reaction o

Problem

Nitromethane (CH3NO2) burns in air to produce significant amounts of heat: 2 CH3NO2(l) + 3/2 O2(g) → 2 CO2(g) + 3 H2O(l) + N2(g); ΔH˚rxn = -1418 kJ.

How much heat is produced by the complete reaction of 5.29 kg of nitromethane?
