Thermochemistry : BombCalorimeter (4 Variations)


Stearic acid (CH3(CH2)16CO2H) is a fatty acid, the part of fat that stores most of the energy. 1.00 g of stearic acid was burned in a bomb calorimeter. The bomb had a heat capacity of 652 J/oC and a 500. g water reservoir. If the temperature rose from 25.0 to 39.3 oC, how much heat was released when the stearic acid was burned?
