#### Answer

The answer is below

#### Work Step by Step

In order to design an experiment to do this, create a coffee cup calorimeter, which features a coffee cup with a lid on it and a thermometer poked through it. Then, add a known amount of $O_2$ and $C_8H_{18}$ solution. Finally, using the change in temperature and the specific heats, solve for the change in enthalpy of the reaction.
