A 1.800-g sample of phenol 1C6H5OH2 was burned in a bomb calorimeter whose total heat capacity is 11.66 kJ/°C. The temperature of the calorimeter plus contents increased from 21.36 to 26.37 °C.
(a) Write a balanced chemical equation for the bomb calorimeter reaction. (b) What is the heat of combustion per gram of phenol? Per mole of phenol?
Biology Lecture Notes Chapter 6 The Energy of Life ● The living cell is a miniature chemical factory where thousands of reactions occur. ● The cell extracts energy and applies energy to perform work. An Organism’s Metabolism Transforms Matter and Energy ● Metabolism is the totality of an organism's chemical reactions. ● Metabolism is an emergent property of life that arises from interactions between molecules within the cell. Metabolic Pathway A metabolic pathway begins with a specific molecule and ends with a product. ● Each step is catalyzed by a specific enzyme. ● Catabolic pathways release energy by breaking down complex molecules into simpler compounds. ● One example of catabolism is cellula
