Problem: Determine the enthalpy of solution for a solid with ΔH values as described in each scenario. Drag the appropriate items to their respective bins.

FREE Expert Solution

We’re being asked to determine the value sign of ΔH.


Recall that:

Exothermic reactions

lose energy, releases heat, temperature of the surroundings increases
▪ involves bond formation (for phase change: gas → liquid → solid)
ΔH is negative

Endothermic reactions

gain/requires energy, absorbs heat, temperature of the surroundings decreases
▪ involves breaking bonds (for phase change: solid → liquid → gas)
ΔH is positive
