Consider the following thermochemical equation for the combustion of acetone (C3H4O), the main ingredient in nail polish remover. C3H6O(l) + 4 O2(g) --> 3CO2(g) + 3H2O(g) delta Hrxn = - 1790 kJ
If a bottle of nail polish remover contains 178 mL of acetone, how much heat would be released by its complete combustion? The density of acetone is 0.788 g/mL.
