ΔH and ΔU

Postby Noh_Jasmine_1J » Tue Feb 05, 2019 1:15 pm

what does the degree symbol mean in the equation ΔU°=ΔH°+W

Since delta H and delta U values can differ depending on the conditions the reaction is happening in, the degree symbol tells us that the reaction is happening under a standard condition of 1atm.

The degree symbol means that the reaction is happening in the standard state, which is at 1atm and 298.15K (or 25°C).

And if concentration is concerned, it would be 1M.

The degree symbol means that the reaction is taking place under STP (standard temperature and pressure) conditions.

the degree symbol indicates that it's happening at STP.

The degree symbolizes that it is occurring at standard conditions of 1atm. There can be instances where there is no degree symbol and that means that there is a change in the standard conditions.
