Sucrose (C12H22O11, table sugar) is oxidized in the body by O2 via a complex set of reactions that ultimately produces CO2(g) and H2O(l) and releases 5.16 × 103 kJ of heat per mole of sucrose...

(a) Write a balanced thermochemical equation for this reaction. Include the physical state of each reactant and product.

Enter your answer for ΔHrxn in scientific notation.

(b) Calculate the energy change per gram of sucrose for this combustion reaction. Do not answer in scientific notation.
