A 1.800-g sample of solid phenol (C6H5OH(s)) was burned in a bomb calorimeter, which has a total heat capacity of 11.66 kJ/∘C. The temperature of the calorimeter plus its contents increased from 21.3

6∘C to 26.37∘C. What is the heat of combustion per gram of phenol? I do not know how to solve for this answer I do not know how to solve for this answer What is the heat of combustion per gram of phenol? What is the heat of combustion per gram of phenol?

Hey there! You just first need to compute for the heat absorbed by the calorimeter then just divide that by the amount of phenol given.

I hope this helps!

  • Isn't the formula forgetting the m for mass though? And is heat combustion the same as enthalpy? And thank you this helps alot. Madison commented 10 months ago
  • Hey there! The Heat capacity is already expressed in terms that it already incorporated mass so you would have to put m in there. Leo commented 10 months ago
