Step 1

There are two following equation given for calculating the heat required to raise the temperature from T1 to T2 of mass (m) of substance.

Step 2

(a) The following assumption required to go from equation (1) to (2):

When CP is assumed to be independent of temperature then term CP comes out of the integration and then expression of (2) equation is obtained.

Step 3

(b) Volume of hexane in bomb calorimeter is 2L at temperature 300 K

Case 1: System consist of liquid hexane and remaining system

∆T = 3.10 K

∆H1...
