2 Name______________________________ 1. (35 points) Dr. Wing Tsang, head of the Thermochemistry Division of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), brings you a sample of a waxy substance, which he says has a formula of C 20 H 18 . He says that he needs a measurement of the enthalpy of formation of this substance. In a constant volume calorimeter, you carry out the combustion of 1.00 g of this material to CO 2 ( g ) and H 2 O( l ). Atomic masses: H = 1, C = 12, O = 16. a) (5 points) Write the balanced chemical reaction corresponding to this combustion process. b) (18 points) The heat capacity of the calorimeter and its contents is 18,750 J deg -1 . When the combustion reaction is carried out, the temperature of the calorimeter is observed to rise 2.186 ° C. Use this information to calculate E ° for the combustion of the compound.
