# Problem: Part A. Calculate the enthalpy of the reaction2NO(g) + O2(g) → 2NO2(g)Given the following reactions and enthalpies of formation:1. 1/2 N2(g) + O2(g) → NO2(g), ΔH°A = 33.2 kJ2. 1/2 N2(g) + 1/2 O2(g) → NO(g), ΔH°B = 90.2 kJExpress your answer with the appropriate units.Hess's law states that "the heat released or absorbed in a chemical process is the same whether the process takes place in one or in several steps." It is important to recall the following rules:1. When two reactions are added, their enthalpy values are added.2. When a reaction is reversed, the sign of its enthalpy value changes.3. When the coefficients of a reaction are multiplied by a factor, the enthalpy value is multiplied by that same factor.

Part A. Calculate the enthalpy of the reaction

2NO(g) + O2(g) → 2NO2(g)

Given the following reactions and enthalpies of formation:
1. 1/2 N2(g) + O2(g) → NO2(g), ΔH°A = 33.2 kJ
2. 1/2 N2(g) + 1/2 O2(g) → NO(g), ΔH°B = 90.2 kJ
