A bomb calorimeter is a device

timer Asked: Dec 1st, 2015

Question description

A bomb calorimeter is a device used to measure the heat of combustion of a substance. A hydrocarbon called nonane was analyzed by running the combustion reaction in the calorimeter with pure oxygen gas. The internal volume of the calorimeter was 1.12 L. A sample of 1.863 g of nonane was added, and the closed calorimeter then had oxygen added until the pressure of oxygen was 10.0 atm and the temperature was 23.1 degrees C.

Assuming the nonane was completely consumed by combustion, how many grams of water would be formed?
