Problem: The standard state of sulfur is solid rhombic sulfur. Use appropriate standard heats of formation to find the average bond energy of the S(double bond)O (S=O) in SO2.

FREE Expert Solution

We are being asked to find the average bond energy of the S(double bond)O (S=O) in SOusing standard heats of formation

To calculate for average bond energy using standard heats of formation, we can use the following equation 

H°rxn = H°f, products - H°f, reactants
