At constant volume, the heat of combustion of a particular compound, compound A, is −3176.0 kJ/mol. When 1.561 g of compound A (molar mass =100.93 g/mol) is burned in a bomb calorimeter, the temperature of the calorimeter (including its contents) rose by 8.955 ∘C. a). What is the heat capacity (calorimeter constant) of the calorimeter? (in kJ/ per degrees Celsius) b). Suppose a 3.075 g sample of a second compound, compound B, is combusted in the same calorimeter, and the temperature rises from 23.63 ∘C to 27.98 ∘C. What is the heat of combustion per gram of compound B? ( in kJ/g)
