If the heat of combustion for a specific compound is −1040.0 kJ/mol and its molar mass is 70.57 g/mol, how many grams of this compound must you burn to release 417.10 kJ of heat?

check_circleExpert Solution
Step 1

The given heat of combustion of compound is -1040.0 kJ/mol. The negative sign suggests that heat is released. Convert heat of combustion from kJ/mol to kJ/g by dividing with molar mass of the compound as shown below.

1040.0 kJ/mol
70.57 g/mol
14.74 kJ/g
