(CpO = 75 JK-1mol-1) 

In context of the question:

High quality coal (anthracite) is almost pure carbon. The combustion of carbon to carbon dioxide releases 393 kJ

per mol of carbon burnt. If 1.000 kg of anthracite is burnt:

  1. (a) How much heat is released?
  2. (b) How much ice (in kg) at 273 K could be melted to give water at 273 K using the heat in (a)? 

(ΔfusH = 6.0 kJmol-1) 

(ΔvapH = 46 kJmol-1) 

(CpO = 75 JK-1mol-1)
