Standard State

Postby Tiffany_Hoang_3C » Mon Jan 16, 2017 11:33 am

Can someone please clarify what the standard state for a pure liquid or solid is? Also, the standard state of an element?

Standard state of a liquid is a liquid. Standard state of a solid is a solid. Standard state of an element is whatever state it is found in at 1 atm and at 25 degrees C. For example, the standard state of bromine is liquid because at 1 atm and 25 degrees C, bromine is found as a liquid.
