FREE Expert Solution
  • Formation equations are made up of reactants in standard form based on the atoms of the products
  • The standard states of elements are the forms that they adopt at a T of 25°C and P of 1 atm
  • For POCl3, the standard form of P is P(s) while O2 (g) for O and Cl2 (g) for Cl
