Chemistry Heat Capacity Question?

At constant volume, the heat of combustion of a particular compound is −3074.0 kJ/mol. When 1.885 g of this compound (molar mass=128.63 g/mol) was burned in a bomb calorimeter, the temperature of the calorimeter, including its contents, rose by 5.597 ∘C. What is the heat capacity (calorimeter constant) of the calorimeter?

    1.885 g / 128.63g/mole X 3074.0 kJ/mole 45.05 kJ

    45050J/5.597C = 8049 J/C

      Just forgot to put the decimal between the 8 and 0. So the answer would actually be 8.049.
