# Constant-volume calorimeters are sometimes calibrated by running a combustion reaction of known ΔE and measuring the change in temperature. For example, the combustion energy of glucose is 15.57 kJ/g. When a 1.000 g sample of glucose burns in a constant volume calorimeter, the calorimeter temperature increases from 21.45 to 23.34°C. Find the total heat capacity of the calorimeter (in kJ/K).
