Solution: Sucrose (table sugar) has the formula C12H22O11 (molar mass = 342.30 g/mol) and a food value of 6.49 kJ/g. Determine the calorimeter constant of the calorimeter in which the combustion of 0.995 g of s

Problem

Sucrose (table sugar) has the formula C12H22O11 (molar mass = 342.30 g/mol) and a food value of 6.49 kJ/g. Determine the calorimeter constant of the calorimeter in which the combustion of 0.995 g of sucrose raises the temperature by 4.21 degrees celsius (answer must be in kJ/degrees celsius).
