units for standard reaction enthalpy

Postby Andie Jian 1D » Sun Jan 27, 2019 12:57 pm

I know that standard enthalpy of formation is always kJ/mol. However, are the units for reaction enthalpy also kJ/mol, or just kJ? I feel like I see mixed answers within the textbook.

It may seem confusing, but the standard unit is kJ/mol and not kJ.
