    This content was COPIED from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

    Consider the reaction CO(g) + 2 H2(g) <-> CH3)H(l) at 25 degree C.
    Change Gdegree(CO) =-137.3 KJ/mol
    change Gdegree (CH3OH)= 166.3 KJ/mol
    change in Hdegree (CO) = -110.5 KJ/mol
    change in Hdegree (CH3OH) = 238.7 KJ/mol
    Sdegree (CO) = 197.9 J/K x mol
    Sdegree (CH3OH)= 126.8 J/K x mol

    Calculate Sdegree(H2(g))
    Show all work and steps to the problem.
