🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Bindell's class at UCF.
The enthalpy of combustion of acetylene C 2H2 is described by
C2H2 (g) + (5/2)O2 (g) ⇌ CO2 (g) + H2O (l) Heat of Reaction (Rxn) = -1299kJ/mol
Calculate the enthalpy of formation of accetylene, given the following enthalpies of formation:
Standard formation [CO2 (g)] = -393.5 kJ/mol
Standard formation [H2O (l)] = -285.8 kj/mol
