Problem: Using the data in Appendix G, calculate the standard enthalpy change for the following reaction:(a) N2(g) + O2(g) ⟶ 2NO(g)

FREE Expert Solution

ΔH°rxn=ΔH°f, prod-ΔH°f, react


Balanced reaction: N2(g) + O2(g)  2NO(g)

Note that we need to multiply each ΔH˚f by the stoichiometric coefficient since ΔH˚f is in kJ/mol. 

  • ΔH˚f = 0 (for elements)
