(i) Consider this reaction


C2H5OH + 3O2 → 2CO2 + 3H2O  Change in Heat = -1370 kJ/mol


When we reverse a reaction, we get the same numerical value for the enthalpy change except that we change the sign. 


We initially have a negative charge so we make it positive for the reverse reaction. 


Reaction reversed: 2CO2 + 3H2O → C2H5OH + 3O2
Change in Heat = + 1370 kJ/mol

Problem Details

(i) Consider this reaction
C2H5OH + 3O2 → 2CO2 + 3H2O Change in Heat = -1370 kJ/mol

What is the enthalpy for this reaction reversed?

Reaction reversed: 2CO2 + 3H2O → C2H5OH + 3O2
Change in Heat = ? kJ/mol

(ii) Calculate the enthalpy of the reaction
2NO(g) + O2(g) → 2NO2(g)
Given the following reactions and enthalpies of formation:
½ N2(g) + O2(g) → NO2(g) Change in Heat a = 33.2 KJ
½ N2(g) + ½ O2 (g) → NO(g) Change in Heat b = 90.2 KJ
Express your answer numerically in kilojoules.

Change in Heat = ? kJ/mol
