The combustion reaction for octane burning in oxygen is: 2 C8H18 (l) + 25 O2(g) → 16 CO2(g) +18 H2O(g) ∆H = -10869 kJ . Suppose an oxygen bomb calorimeter is loaded with oxygen gas and excess octane. The oxygen gas has a volume of 480.0 mL, pressure of 8.88 atm, and an initial temperature of 22.1 °C. The calorimeter has a heat capacity of 1.75 kJ/ °C . Assuming the oxygen reacts completely, what is the final temperature of the calorimeter?
