    5. The combustion of butane produces heat according to the equation
    2C4H10(g) + 13O2(g)  8CO2(g) + 10H2O(l) H° = -5,314 kJ
    What is the heat of combustion per gram of butane?
    A.-32.5 kJ/g
    B.-45.7 kJ/g
    C.-91.5 kJ/g
    D.-2,656 kJ/g
    E.-15,440 kJ/g

    6. The freezing of water is an example of an exothermic change.

    7. Calcium oxide and water react in an exothermic reaction.
    CaO(s) + H2O(l)  Ca(OH)2(s) H° = -64.8 kJ/mol
    How much heat would be liberated when 7.15 g CaO(s) is dropped into a beaker containing 152 g H2O?
    A.1.97 x 10-2 kJ
    B.8.26 kJ
    C.508 kJ
    D.547 kJ
    E.555 kJ

    5. The combustion of butane produces heat according to the equation
    2C4H10(g) + 13O2(g)  8CO2(g) + 10H2O(l) H° = -5,314 kJ
    What is the heat of combustion per gram of butane?
    The heat given is per mol of butane. Molecular weight of butane is:
    4*12+10=58 (g/mol)
    So heat per g is -5,314/58 = -91.6 ...
