A 0.005 mol sample of C2H4 (MM 28 g/mol) is burned in a bomb calorimeter containing 500 grams of water at an initial temperature of 20.00°C. After the reaction, the final temperature of the water is 22.76°C.

The heat capacity of the calorimeter is 420 J/°C. Using these data, calculate the heat of combustion of C2H4 in kJ/mol.

Cs water = 4.18 J/g°C

(Ans -1386 kJ/mol)
