# Problem: Using values from Appendix C in the textbook, calculate the standard enthalpy change for each of the following reactions.Mg(OH)2(s) → MgO(s) + H2O(l)

###### FREE Expert Solution

We are asked to calculate the value of ΔH˚ for Mg(OH)2(s) → MgO(s) + H2O(l)

Note that we need to multiply each ΔH˚ by the stoichiometric coefficient since ΔH˚ is in kJ/mol.

Balanced reaction : Mg(OH)2(s) → MgO(s) + H2O(l)
