Consider the process of 2 H(g) → H 2 (g) where ΔH = −436 kJ/mol

Determine each sentence below whether it's true or false.

Shining light on hydrogen atoms could put electrons in n = 3, provided the intensity was sufficiently high.

Coulomb’s Law describes that the electrons from one H atom would be attracted to the electrons of the other H atom.

The temperature of the surroundings would increase as this reaction proceeds.

Reacting two moles of H(g) would produce 2.02 grams of H 2.

When this reaction occurs in a sealed container at constant temperature, the pressure in the container should decrease.

Reacting two moles of H(g) would release 436 kJ.
