If the heat from burning 6.800 g of C6H6, 2C6Hy(l) + 15O2 (g)?12CO2 (g) + 6H2O (l) +6542 kJ
is added to 5691 g of water at 21 degrees Celsius, what is the final temperature of the water?

Note: The specific heat of H2O(l) is 4.184 J/(degrees Celsius).
Also, use these conversion factors to find the amount of heat produced from burning 6.800 g of C6H6.
- (78.1134 g C6H6)/(1 mol C6H6 )
- (6542 kJ)/(2 mol C6H6 )
- (1000 J)/(1 kJ)
