Friday 2/1 Lecture Notes

I was looking over my notes from Friday's lecture and had written down the diagram with C6H12O6 and 6O2 as reactants/6CO2 and 6H2O as products and H/heat given off increasing, but I don't really remember the context it was given in. Can someone explain?

I believe this was the combustion of glucose. I think it was used to demonstrate that combustion typically results in these products. Hope that helps.

Re: Friday 2/1 Lecture Notes

In lecture, Lavelle was explaining that when the reaction goes to completion heat will be released and and delta H will be negative since the heat is leaving the system. He used this example to show how thermodynamics is time independent and only reliant of the initial and final states of a reaction.
