Question 8.55

Postby CalebBurns3L » Fri Jan 26, 2018 1:00 am

Super confused on this question. In the answer manual they multiply the first equation and its standard reaction enthalpy by 3/2 which makes sense to me. But in the next equation they ONLY multiple O2 by 3/2 so that the O2's cancel and I don't get how you're allowed to do that.

I think Lavelle said that it was a typo in the book and that the O2 in the second rxn is supposed to be 3/2, not 1, lol
