Calculate the final temperature and the change in enthalpy when 765 J of energy is transferred as heat to 0.820 mol Kr(g) at 298 K and 1.00 atm (a) at constant pressure; (b) at constant volume. Treat the gas as ideal.

For part a the solutions manual says q=(5.025 g/83.80 g/mol)(25C - 97.6C)(20.8 J/molC) = -90.6 J.

Where did the 5.025g come from? And how did they find that temperature change?

Okay, the temperature bit super weird because the actual textbook (not the solutions manual) has all the odd-numbered answers and it's only given a temperature change for part b = 373 K.
I think the 5.025 g is the moles of Kr given converted to grams, over the molar mass of Kr, which is approximately 83 g/mol. I think the manual is just trying to show a molar conversion because it's using the specific heat capacity in grams, not the molar heat capacity.
