    1. In earlier times, ethyl ether was commonly used as an anesthetic. It is, however, highly flammable. When 5.0 mL of ethyl ether C4H10 (l), (d=0.714 g/mL) is burned in a bomb calorimeter, the temperature rises from 23.5°C to 39.7. The calorimeter heat capacity is 10.24 kJ/°C. What is heat released when 5.00 mL ethyl ether is burned? (Round your answer to the nearest whole number)

    2. The specific heat of aluminum is 0.902 J/g?°C. How much heat is absorbed by an aluminum pie tin with a mass of 473 g to raise its temperature from room temperature (23°C) to oven temperature (375°F)? F = °C x 1.8 + 32 (Give your answer in kJ and round to the nearest tenths)
