A chemical engineer studying the properties of fuels placed 1.500 g
of a hydrocarbon in the bomb of a calorimeter and filled it with
O2 gas. The bomb was immersed in 2.500 L of water and the
reaction initiated. The water temperature rose from 20.00�C to
23.55�C. If the calorimeter (excluding the water) had a heat capacity
of 403 J/K, what was the heat of combustion (qV)
per gram of the fuel?

25.7 kJ/g
