Standard reaction of enthalpy

What is the standard reaction of enthalpy? I don't really understand the significance of it in chemistry?

Great question. Standard reaction enthalpy is the reaction enthalpy when all the reactants and products are in their standard state at 1atm. This is very significant because most reactions are given in their standard state. As discussed on Wednesday's lecture, we can calculate the standard reaction enthalpy by calculating the standard enthalpy of formation of all products and subtract the standard enthalpy of formation of all reactants. Hope this helps.
