In this problem, we are asked to determine the enthalpy when the reaction is reversed.
The given reaction is:
C2H5OH + 3 O2 → 2 CO2 + 3 H2O ΔH = – 1370 kJ/mol
Consider this reaction
C2H5OH + 3 O2 → 2 CO2 + 3 H2O ΔH = -1370 kJ/mol
What is the enthalpy for this reaction reversed?
reaction reversed: 2CO2 + 3 H2O → C2H5OH + 3 O2
ΔH = ? KJ/mol
