When 1.000 g of olive oil is completely burned in pure oxygen in a bomb calorimeter, the temperature of the water bath increases from 22.000ºC to 22.241ºC.
a. How many dietary calories(Cal) (1 Cal = 1 kcal) are in olive oil, per gram? The heat capacity of the calorimeter is 9.032 kJ/ºC and 1cal. = 4.184J.

b. Olive oil is pure glyceryl trioleate, C57H104O6. The equation of the combustion of thissubstance is :
C57 H104O6(l) + 80 O2(g)→57 CO2(g) + 52 H2O(l)

What is the heat of combustion of glyceryl trioleate in kJ per mol?
