Answer

$-36.03\ kJ/mol$

Work Step by Step

From the definition of heat capacity: $(415\ g\times 4.184\ J/g.K+155\ J/K)\times(20.72-18.90)\ K=3442.3\ J$ With a negative sign since the temperature raises. Number of moles of ammonium nitrate: $7.647\ g\div80.04\ g/mol=0.096\ mol$ Hence: $-3442.3\ J\div 0.096\ mol=-36.03\ kJ/mol$
