When 0.187 g of benzene, C6H6, is burned in a bomb calorimeter, the surrounding water bath rises in temperature by 7.48 degrees C. (Figure 1) Assuming that the bath contains 250.0 g of water and that the calorimeter itself absorbs a negligible amount of heat, calculate combustion energies (ΔE) for benzene in both kilojoules per mole.
