Problem: How does the bond energy of HCl(g) differ from the standard enthalpy of formation of HCl(g)?

FREE Expert Solution

The bond energy determines the strength of the bond in a compound.

▪ the higher the bond energy, the higher is the energy required to break up the molecule/compound into its individual atoms


The standard enthalpy of formation is the change in enthalpy when one mole of a substance in the standard state is formed from its pure elements (formation of covalent bond)
