Question on bomb calorimetry
« on: November 01, 2009, 08:02:13 PM »
A 1.96g sample of titanium was burned in a bomb calorimeter that had a heat capacity of 9.84 kJ/°C. The temperature of the calorimeter increased from 36.84°C to 98.82°C. Calculate "q" for this process in kJ/g.

The answer I got was -3.11 x 10^2 kJ/g.

Is this correct? If not, could you please explain how to get the correct answer?
