Calculate the heat of combustion of cyclohexatriene using the bond energies for C=C,C-C, and CH provided below. The actual value measured experimentally is 3331.2 KJ/mol. What is the percentage difference between the measured and calculated value?
Bond Energy [kj (kcal)}:
C=C 611 (146)
C-C 350 (83)
CH 420 (100).© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 4, 2021, 9:59 pm ad1c9bdddf
Cyclohexatriene is composed of 3 C-C bonds, 3 C=C bonds and 6 C-H bonds
During combustion, all these covalent bonds are broken ...
The solution calculates the heat of combustion.
