The aromatic hydrocarbon cymene (C10H14) is found in nearly 100 spices and fragrances including coriander, anise, and thyme. The complete combustion of 1.608 g of cymene in a bomb calorimeter (Ccalorimeter = 3.640 kJ/°C) produced an increase in temperature of 19.35°C. Calculate the molar enthalpy of combustion of cymene (ΔHcomb) in kilojoules per mole of cymene.
