Enthalpy Calculations

Postby Brandon Tao 1K » Sun Jan 26, 2020 8:53 pm

Will we need to memorize the enthalpy formulas for phase changes such as liquid to vapor?

I am assuming that if we were asked to calculate enthalpy of a reaction, either the enthalpy of formation or bond enthalpies would be given to us in the problem.

I doubt we will have to memorize any formulas as in most Lavelle classes the formulas are all provided on the test.

I think you should just know that the enthalpy is positive for all the phase changes.

I think it's helpful to know the generic formulas for liquid to vapor, solid to liquid, and solid to vapor which make up the formula (Delta H sublimation)=(Delta H fusion) + (Delta H vapor).

The only formula on the Constants and equations sheet is the third method equation. The rest will probably have to be memorized.
