Solve this Standard Heat of Reaction Problem

Given the standard heats of formation for the following compounds, calculate the change H2 degrees 98 for the following reaction:

CH4 (g) + H2O (g) >>>>>> CH3OH (l) + H2 (g)

Change in H Degree F (kj/mole) -75 -242 -238 0

I need to see how to solve this, and most importantly, the answer.

Solution Preview

Delta H for the reaction is = heats of formation of ALL products - heats of reaction of ALL reactants.

delta ...
