Q = 168.291 kJ
= 0.0365 mol C8H8
When a 3.80-g sample of liquid octane (C8H18) is burned in a bomb calorimeter, the temperature of the calorimeter rises by 27.1 °C. The heat capacity of the calorimeter, measured in a separate experiment, is 6.21 kJ/°C. Determine ΔE for octane combustion in units of kJ/mol octane.
