Calculate the enthalpy change for the reaction: 2 H2O2(l) → 2 H2O(l) + O2(g)
Note that we need to multiply each ΔH˚ by the stoichiometric coefficient since ΔH˚ is in kJ/mol.
You may want to reference (Pages 186 - 190)Section 5.7 while completing this problem.
Calculate the enthalpy change for the reaction:
2 H2O2(l) → 2 H2O(l) + O2(g)
using enthalpies of formation:
ΔHf [H2O2]=−187.8 kJ/mol
ΔHf [H2O]=−285.8 kJ/mol
