Standard Enthalpy of Formation lecture example
Posted: Sun Jan 22, 2017 2:17 pm
In lecture/the course reader (pg. 17), there is an example provided for standard reaction enthalpy that involves solid graphite, hydrogen gas, oxygen gas, and liquid ethanol. In the example, the delta H naught rxn is provided as -555.38 kJ. I was just curious how this number was found, or if we need to know how to find this value if it is not provided?
