Problem: Consider the following balanced thermochemical equation for a reaction sometimes used for H2S production:1/8S8 (s) + H2 (g) ⟶ H2S (g)                 ΔH = −20.2 kJWhat is ΔH when 2.6 mol of S 8 reacts?

FREE Expert Solution
  • Recall that for enthalpy of formation (ΔH) corresponds to ONE mole of the product. This means that for the formation of 1 MOLE of H2S, heat released (-ΔH) is -20.2 kJ

  • Setup a dimensional analysis using the stoichiometry of Sand H2S
