Under constant-volume conditions, the heat of combustion of
naphthalene 1C10H82 is 40.18 kJ>g. A 2.50-g sample of naphthalene
is burned in a bomb calorimeter. The temperature of
the calorimeter increases from 21.50 to 28.83 °C.
(c) Suppose that in changing samples, a portion
of the water in the calorimeter were lost. In what way, if any,
would this change the heat capacity of the calorimeter?
