Calculate the heat of reaction at the standard reference state for the following reactions:
2CaO(s) + 2MgO(s) + 4H2O(l) ----> 2Ca(OH)2(s) + 2Mg(OH)2(s)
NaCl(s) + 2SO2(g) + 2H2O(l) + O2(g) ----> 2Na2SO4(s) + 4HCl(g)
n-C4H10(g) ----> C2H4(g) + C2H6(g)© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 4, 2021, 5:36 pm ad1c9bdddf
The heat of reaction represents the difference in the enthalpies of the reaction products and reactants at constant pressure and at a definite temperature, with every substance in a definite physical state. If heat is liberated in the reaction, the process is said to be ...
The solution gives a detailed explanation as to how to to calculate heat of reaction from enthalpies of formation.
