# Problem: Consider the following equilibrium between oxides of nitrogen: 3NO(g) ⇌ NO2(g) + N2O(g)Use data in Appendix C in the textbook to calculate ΔH˚ for this reaction.

###### FREE Expert Solution

Balanced reaction:

3NO(g) ⇌ NO2(g) + N2O(g)

Recall that ΔH˚rxn can be calculated from the enthalpy of formation (ΔH˚f) of the reactants and products involved:

$\overline{){\mathbf{∆}}{\mathbf{H}}{{\mathbf{°}}}_{{\mathbf{rxn}}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{∆}}{\mathbf{H}}{{\mathbf{°}}}_{\mathbf{f}\mathbf{,}\mathbf{products}}{\mathbf{-}}{\mathbf{∆}}{\mathbf{H}}{{\mathbf{°}}}_{\mathbf{f}\mathbf{,}\mathbf{reactants}}}$
