Thermochemistry : BombCalorimeter (4 Variations)

Stearic acid (CH 3 (CH 2 ) 16 CO 2 H) is a fatty acid, the part of fat that stores most of the energy. 1.00 g of stearic acid was burned in a bomb calorimeter. The bomb had a heat capacity of 652 J/ o C and a 500. g water reservoir. If the temperature rose from 25.0 to 39.3 o C, how much heat was released when the stearic acid was burned?
