Solution :-

Formation of carbon dioxide from di-oxygen and carbon gas is given as:

C(s) + O2(g) → CO2(g)\(\)

\( \Delta _{f}H = -393.5 kJ mol^{-1}\)

1 mole CO2 = 44g

Heat released during formation of 44g CO2 

\( -393.5 kJ mol^{-1}\)

Therefore, heat released during formation of 35.2g of CO2  can be calculated as

=\( \dfrac{-393.5kJmol^{-1}}{44g}\times 35.2g\)

\( -314.8 kJ mol^{-1}\)
