You can find the bond enthalpies of the reactants and products involved in breakage/forming of bonds in the reaction and then add those enthalpies to find the total enthalpy of the reaction. You can also calculate (total enthalpy of products) - (total enthalpy of reactants) which will yield the total enthalpy change of the reaction.

There are 3 methods he described in class. You can add the bond enthalpies between the molecules and do broken - formed. If you have 2 reactions, you can add up the enthalpies to find the enthalpy of reaction for the combined one. Finally, you can use the enthalpy of formation to find it (products - reactants).

Return to “Reaction Enthalpies (e.g., Using Hess’s Law, Bond Enthalpies, Standard Enthalpies of Formation)”
