Balanced equation: C3H8 + 5O2 → 3CO2 + 4H2O
ΔH˚rxn = –2219.85 kJ/ mol C3H8
q = –568805 kJ
-qpropane = +qwater
A propane tank on a home barbeque contains 11.3x103 g of propane. Use the value for ΔHrxn provided in the text to calculate the total amount of heat produced when the entire contents of the tank of propane is burned. What mass of water could be warmed from 25˚C to 100˚C with this much heat?
