What will be the final temperature of the calorimeter? ?
A 10.0 g sample of propane, C3H8, was combusted in a constant-volume bomb calorimeter. The total heat capacity of the bomb calorimeter and water was 8.0 kJ/°C. The molar heat of combustion of propane is -2 222 KJ/mol. If the starting temperature of the water was 20 °C, what will be the final temperature of the bomb calorimeter?

(10.0 g C3H8) / (44.0956 g C3H8/mol) x (2222 kJ/mol) / (8.0 kJ/°C) =
62.988°C + 20°C = 83°C
