A sample of sugar D-ribose (C5H10O5) of mass 0.727g was placed in a calorimeter and ignited in the presence of excess oxygen. The temperature rose by 0.910K. In a separate experiment in the same calorimeter, the combustion of 0.825g of benzoic acid, for which the internal energy of combustion is -3251kJ mol-1, gave a temperature rise of 1.940K. Calculate the internal energy of combustion of sugar D-ribose and it’s enthalpy of formation.
