# Problem: When 2.060 g of titanium (molar mass = 47.87 g mol−1) is combusted in a bomb calorimeter, the temperature of the calorimeter increases from 25.00°C to 91.60°C. The heat capacity of the bomb calorimeter was measured to be 9.84 kJ °C−1. Calculate the heat of combustion for one mole of titanium.(A) −0.154 kJ mol−1(B) 1.52 × 104 kJ mol−1(C) −1.52 × 104 kJ mol−1(D) −6.55 × 105 kJ mol−1(E) 6.55 × 105 kJ mol−1
