Problem 4125

The energy content of a certain food is to be determined in a bomb calorimeter that contains 3 kg of water by burning a 2-g sample of it in the presence of 100 g of air in the reaction chamber. If the water temperature rises by 3.28C when equilibrium is established, determine the energy content of the food, in kJ/kg, by neglecting the thermal energy stored in the reaction chamber and the energy supplied by the mixer. What is a rough estimate of the error involved in neglecting the thermal energy stored in the reaction chamber?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

 Mycenaean world - 1600-1200 BC o Bronze age greece  The introduction of bronze changed everything  More efficient tools and weapons  They spoke/ wrote in linear B o Early Mycenaean's - uncovered by Schliemann  Shaft graves  Important people buried in them  Lots of treasure found inside  Mask of Agamemnon  Tholos tombs  Found in Mycenae and southern Greece  Treasure found in the southern Greece ones o Most of the Minoan palaces burned in 1450 BC  Only Knossos and Chania survive o Fall of the Minoans
