Calcium carbide (CaC2) reacts with water to form acetylene (C2H2) and Ca(OH)2.
From the following enthalpy of reaction data, calculate ^Hof for CaC2(s):
CaC2(s) + 2H2O------> Ca(OH)2(s) + C2H2(g) ^Ho= -127.2kJ
What Thermodynamic Quantities do I use? What are the steps to the equation? Please show all of your work and define any symbols used. Thank you.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com October 7, 2022, 5:59 pm ad1c9bdddf
first, find the enthalpy of formation (Hof) of C2H2, Ca(OH)2, and H2O from your book.
I found the following data from a google ...
This solution shows how to calculate the enthalpy of reaction by using the enthalpy of formation.
