Problem: What is ΔHrxn° for the following chemical reaction? CS2(g) + 2H2O(l) → CO2(g) + 2H2S(g) You can use the following table of standard heats of formation (ΔH f°) to calculate the enthalpy of the given reaction.Express the standard enthalpy of reaction to three significant figures and include the appropriate units.

FREE Expert Solution

Recall that the equation for ΔH°rxn is: 

H°rxn=(products)-(reactants)

For this problem, we need to solve for ΔH°rxn for the reaction: 

CS2(g) + 2H2O(l) → CO2(g) + 2H2S(g)

Upon checking, the equation is balanced

We will use the following table for the standard heats of formation, ΔH°f :
