Enthalpy of Complicated Molecule

Postby Tiffany_Cacy_3D » Sun Feb 03, 2019 2:02 pm

How do we find the enthalpy for a complicated molecule? I know some of them are listed in the book but are we expected to figure out complicated enthalpies during a test or will those generally be given?

The way that you would find out the enthalpy of a molecule would be by using the enthalpies of the other molecules in the reaction which should be given. You could also add up the bond enthalpies if those are given.
