A 1.00 g sample of octane (C8H18) is burned in a calorimeter that contains 1.20 kg of water. The temperature of the water and the bomb rises from 25.00°C to 33.20°C. The heat capacity of the bomb, Cbomb, is 837 J/0C . Specific heat for water: 4.184 Jg–1°C–1.

a) Calculate the amount of heat gained by the calorimeter

b) Calculate the amount of heat gained by the water

c) Calculate the amount of heat given off per mol of octane (in kJ/mol)
