Enthalpy of formation is the energy involved upon formation of 1 MOLE of a certain molecule where the reactants are the atoms involved. The atoms are present in their standard form
ΔHf of some compounds are usually given on tables of standard enthalpy formation constants
For CaCO3 (s), the balanced formation equation will appear as:
For CaCO3(s), find the value of Hf. (Use Appendix C in the textbook.)
