Example:
Need a balanced equation (aka thermochemical equation)
2 H2 (g) + O2 (g) =&gt; 2 H2O (g)
∆H = -241.83 kJ
(is this endothermic or exothermic?)
This means that for every 2 moles of hydrogen gas consumed, the heat of the reaction (aka
enthalpy) is -241.83 kJ.
Same goes for 1 mole of oxygen gas and 2 moles of water.
What if I wanted to find out how much heat is produced from the same reaction if 4 moles of H2
(g) is consumed?
Example:
H2O (l)
+
CO2 (g)

C6H12O6 (s)
+
O2 (g)
∆H= 2808 kJ
Is this reaction endothermic or exothermic?
How many grams of glucose would be produced from the reaction of 10.0 grams of water with
excess carbon dioxide?
How many kJ of energy would be absorbed if 10.0 grams of water reacted with excess carbon
dioxide?
How many liters of carbon dioxide gas would need to react in order to absorb 5000 kJ of energy?
Example:
How many grams of Cl2 are needed to release a total of 1000 kJ of energy from this reaction?
P
+
Cl2

2 PCl5
∆H = -886 kJ
