The combustion of isopropyl alcohol occurs according to the following reaction:

C3H7OH (l) + 9/2 (g) ----> 3CO2(g) + 4H20 (g)

How much work is done if 1 mole of isopropyl alcohol is burned at a temperature of 298k and 1 atm. pressure? Give your answer in the following units: (a) L- atm, (b) J and (c) KJ.

If the heat of combustion of isopropyl alcohol delta H=-2007.7 KJ/mol at 298 k and 1 atm. pressure, what is the value of delta E for the reaction? Give your answer in kJ/mol.
