The specific heat capacity of benzene (C6H6) is 1.74 J/g · K. What is its molar heat capacity (in J/moI · K)?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The molar heat capacity of benzene has to be calculated.

Concept Introduction:

Molar Heat capacity is the heat energy required to raise the temperature of 1mol of substance by 1K.

Specific heat capacity is the heat energy required to raise the temperature of 1gm of substance by 1K.

Explanation

Given, specific heat capacity of mercury 1.74JK/g

Molar mass of benzene =78.11g/mol

Molar heat capacity =Specific heat capacity ×molar mass.

Substitute the values in the above equation
