An empty 4.00-L steel vessel is filled with 1.00 atm of CH41g2
and 4.00 atm of O21g2 at 300 °C. A spark causes the
CH4 to burn completely, according to the equation
CH41g2 + 2 O21g2¡CO21g2 + 2 H2O1g2
ΔH° = -802 kJ
(b) What is the final temperature inside the vessel after
combustion, assuming that the steel vessel has a mass
of 14.500 kg, the mixture of gases has an average molar
heat capacity of 21 J>1mol # °C2, and the heat capacity
of steel is 0.449 J>1g # °C2?
