Bond Energy: C=C is 602 kJ/mol; C-H is 413 kJ/mol; O-H is 463 kJ/mol, O=O is 498 kJ/mol; C=O is 799 kJ/mol. For the combustion reaction of ethylene (C2H4)
C2H4 + 3 O2 → 2 CO2 + 2 H2O
assume all reactants and products are gases, and calculate the ∆H 0rxn using bond energies.
1. −251 kJ/mol
2. −680 kJ/mol
3. 1300 kJ/mol
4. 680 kJ/mol
5. 0 kJ/mol
6. −1300 kJ/mol
