kJ vs. kJ/mol

How can you tell whether a question's answer is in kJ or kJ/mol? The solution manual seems to flip-flop between the two.

Generally, the standard enthalpy of formation is in kJ/mol, and for the standard enthalpy of reaction, answers are generally kJ. You can determine the kJ/mol for standard enthalpy of reaction by looking at the chemical equation.

Return to “Reaction Enthalpies (e.g., Using Hess’s Law, Bond Enthalpies, Standard Enthalpies of Formation)”
