8.49-temp?

Postby sofiakavanaugh » Sun Jan 21, 2018 8:54 am

Hi,

for 8.49 we have to use the equation deltaU= deltaH-delta(n)RT and it doesn't give us a temperature to use, but in the solutions manual it uses 298K (25°C). Is it always safe to assume a reaction is at 25 degrees C if it is not stated in the problem?

Thanks

I believe so. In many problems, 25 degrees C is the standard temperature, if not specifically stated.
