Problem: Use the values of ΔHf° in Appendix 4 to calculate ΔH° for the following reactionsb. SiCl4 (g) + 2H2O(l) → SiO2 (s) + 4HCl (aq)

FREE Expert Solution

We can use the following equation to solve for ΔH˚rxn:


ΔH°rxn=ΔH°f, prod-ΔH°f, react


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

Also, note that ΔH˚f for elements in their standard state is 0.
