When 0.100 g of graphite is burned completely in a bomb calorimeter (heat capacity = 3.344 kJ/°C, containing 3000 g of water, a temperature rise of 0.21°C is observed. What is ΔE for the combustion of graphite? The specific heat of liquid water is 4.184 J/g•°C. 1. ΔE = -40.1 kJ/mol 2. ΔE = -3.34 kJ/mol 3. ΔE = +3.34 kJ/mol 4. ΔE = -285 kJ/mol 5. ΔE = -401.0 kJ/mol
