Reaction Sequences

Postby Kassandra Molina 2B » Mon Jan 22, 2018 9:14 pm

Is there an easy, quick way to calculate the overall reaction enthalpy from the enthalpies of the reactions in a reaction sequence? I understand the steps but it takes me a while so I'm wondering if there is a quicker way or is it mostly trial and error.

I find it easy to find the desired reactants and products and arrange them with reactants on the left and products on the right. From there, I just multiply the various equations by whatever is necessary to cancel other substances out with each other.
