Types of enthalpy

Postby Valeria Viera 1B » Sun Feb 03, 2019 11:04 pm

What is the difference between and standard enthalpy of formation ° ?

How do we know which to use?

Standard enthalpy refers to when all reactants and products are in their standard state at 1 atm or 1 M. For an element, it is the most stable phase at 25°C. Most reactions are given in standard state. If the bond enthalpies aren't given then you should calculate standard enthalpy of the reaction.

Standard enthalpy of formation is the standard reaction enthalpy for the formation of 1 mole of substance from its elements in their most stable form and is measured in units of kJ/moles
