###### FREE Expert Solution

We are asked to calculate the quantity of heat produced when 16.0 g of propane is completely combusted in air under standard conditions.

Balanced reaction:

C3H8(g) + 5 O2(g)→ 3 CO2(g) + 4 H2O(l)

ΔH°rxn = -2043.85 kJ/ mol C3H8

Calculate heat produced when 16.0 g of propane is completely combusted:

Molar mass C3H8(g) = 44.11 g/mol

The following table contains some standard enthalpies of formation, pandoc: Error at "source" (line 1, column 32): unexpected "{" expecting letter or new-line {Delta H^circ}_{ m f hspace{1 pt}}, at 298 m K.

 Substance Formula ΔH°f( m kJ/mol) Carbon dioxide CO2(g) -393.5 Carbon monoxide CO(g) -110.5 Methane CH4(g) -74.80 Propane C3H8(g) -103.85 Water H2O(l) -285.8 Water vapor H2O(g) -241.8

You may want to reference (Pages 186 - 190) ^ Section 5.7 while completing this problem.

Many portable gas heaters and grills use propane, C3H8(g).

Using enthalpies of formation, calculate the quantity of heat produced when 16.0 g of propane is completely combusted in air under standard conditions. Assume that liquid water is forming.
