Rocket engine combustion/cooling


I am trying to design a regenerative cooling system for a liquid bi-propellant rocket engine that uses liquid ethanol (C2H6OH) and liquid hydrogen-peroxide (H2O2) for the fuel and oxidizer, respectively. I have already determined a constant mass flow rate for each liquid.

Given this information, my question is, how can I determine how much power this combustion creates? With this value, I should be able to determine how much liquid coolant is required to keep the engine from overheating.
