How much heat will be released during the complete combustion of 500 g of natural gas?

Given: m (mass of burnt natural gas) = 500 g (0.5 kg).

Reference values: q (specific heat of combustion of natural gas) = 44 * 10 ^ 6 J / kg.

The released amount of heat during the complete combustion of natural gas will be equal to the product of its mass and specific heat of combustion: Q = q * m.

Calculation: Q = 44 * 10 ^ 6 * 0.5 = 22 * 10 ^ 6 J (22 MJ).

Answer: 22 MJ of heat will be released.
