Heat evolved in the reaction of CaC2 with water
Calcium carbide (CaC2) reacts with water to form acetylene (C2H2), a gas used as a fuel in welding.
CaC2 (s) + 2 H2O (l) ---> C2H2 (g) + Ca(OH)2 (s)
Change in Heat (Delta H) = -128.0 kJ
How many kilojoules of heat are evolved in the reaction of 3.5 kg CaC2 with 1.15 L H2O?
It shows how to calculate the heat evolved in the reaction of CaC2 with water. The solution is detailed and has a '5/5' rating.
