    Burning a tree

    I am trying to find the energy of burning a tree to a charcoal remain, not a pile of ash mind you.

    the specific heat of wood is 1.76 j/gC

    the mass of a pine tree is around 907 kg

    the heat of burning wood is around 600 C

    what would the energy value be in j/cc?

    Maybe he's developed super powers and wants to know where his power level lies?

    Nevermind

    I found it should be this with the temperature change from 21.1 degrees and using heat capacity calc

    600 - 21.1 = 578.9 degree temperature change.
    578.9 x 907 * 1760 = 924109648 Joules, or 0.220867506692 Tons of TNT
