Problem: Use standard enthalpies of formation to calculate ΔH˚rxn for the following reaction: CO(g) + H2O(g) → H2(g) + CO2(g){ m{CO(}}g); + ;{ m{H}}_2 { m{O(}}g); ightarrow ;{ m{H}}_2 (g); + ;{ m{CO}}_2 (g)

FREE Expert Solution

We can use the following equation to solve for ΔH˚rxn:

ΔH°rxn=ΔH°f, prod-ΔH°f, react


Balanced reaction: CO(g) + H2O(g) → H2(g) + CO2(g)
