How much heat is produced by the complete reaction of 6.81 kg of nitromethane?

Nitromethane (CH3NO2) burns in air to produce significant amounts of heat via the following reaction:

2CH3NO2(l)+32O2(g)→2CO2(g)+3H2O(l)+N2(g)ΔH∘rxn=−1418kJ

Step 1

According to the given balanced chemical reaction,

Step 2

As per the given data, for every 2 moles of nitromethane, 1418 kJ of heat is released.

Given mass of nitromethane = 6.18 kg

As per the conversion factor: 1 kg = 1000 g

Therefore, mass of nitromethane = 6180 g

Step 3

As per the mole ...
