We’re being asked to determine the heat of combustion (in kJ/mole) of ethane, C2H6


Recall that ΔH˚rxn can be calculated from the enthalpy of formation (ΔH˚f) of the reactants and products involved


H°rxn=H°f,products-H°f,reactants


For this problem, we need to do these steps:

Step 1Write the balanced equation for the combustion reaction of ethane

Step 2: Calculate the ΔH˚combustion
