Step by Step Explanation

Ethylene, C2H4, will react with hydrogen gas under appropriate conditions to form ethane, C2H6. A 10.0-liter vessel is charged with 1.5 atm of hydrogen and 1.0 atm of ethylene at 25°C. The reaction is allowed to proceed to completion. Determine the total pressure in the vessel at 25° at the completion of the reaction.

Gas Laws & Heat Of Reaction

For the reaction
2 NO(g) + O2(g) -->2 NO2(g)
deltaH = -126.0 kJ at 25C.

(a) Calculate the amount of heat transferred when 333 g of NO(g) reacts with O2(g) at 25C and 1 atm.
(b) Does this heat flow into the system or does it flow to the surroundings?
(c) Is this reaction exothermic or endothermic?

If 8675 J of heat flows into 135.0 g of water initially at 20.0C, find the final temperature of
the water. The specific heat of water is 4.18 J g^-1 K^-1.

Find the molecular weight of a gas if 22.24 g of the gas in a 7045 cm^3
container at 20°C exerts a pressure of 698 torr.

R = 0.08206 L atm mol^-1 K^-1
1 atm = 760 torr
c = 3.00 x 10^8 m/s
h = 6.63 x 10^-34 J . s

Calculate deltaH at 25C is -1790 kJ for the reaction
C3H6O(l) + 4O2(g) -->3 CO2(g) + 3 H2O(l)

Given these f deltaH values at 25C: -394 kJ/mol for CO2(g), -286 kJ/mol for H2O(l), and 0 for
O2(g), find f deltaH for C3H6O(l).

What volume of H2(g) at 27C and 1.08 atm is produced when
45.3 g of Al reacts as follows:

2Al + 6HNO3(aq) --> 2Al(NO3)3 + 3H2
