An azeotrope is a mixture of two or more liquids which distill together as if they were a single compound. Ethanol and water form an azeotrope, making it difficult to purify ethanol.

A student is performing bomb calorimetry for a combustion reaction. The bomb calorimeter normally holds 5 L of water with a heat capacity of 4.185 J/g•°C. However, the student misread the directions and used 6 L of ethanol which has a heat capacity of 2.423 J/g•°C. If the student calculates the energy released by the reaction assuming it was 5 L of water, what will be the difference between the actual energy of the reaction and the calculated energy? Note: the density of ethanol and water under normal conditions is 0.8 g/mL and 1.0 g/mL, respectively. 

A 
The calculated energy will be higher than the actual energy because the total heat capacity of the calorimeter with ethanol is greater than with water. 
B
