9.15 confusion

Postby Allison Young 1K » Tue Feb 13, 2018 10:11 pm

9.15 : Use data in Table 8.3 or Appendix 2A to calculate the entropy change for (a) the freezing of 1.00 mol H2O(l) at 0.00 $C; (b) the vaporization of 50.0 g of ethanol, C2H5OH, at 351.5 K.

In the solution for part (b), delta H is found by multiplying the # of moles of C2H5OH by 43.5 kJ/mol. I could not find the value 43.5 kJ/mol in the book so I am confused as to what that is & where to get that value from.

Since we're calculating phase change you can find the value of 43.5 on page 284, where it lists all the values of the standard enthalpies of phase changes.
