Are the enthalpy of reaction units kJ or kJ/mol? I thought that because change in enthalpy of rxn = q, the units would be written in kJ. However, the solutions manual writes enthalpy of reaction as kJ/mol when using bond enthalpies to calculate it.
qp(work at a constant temperature) does equal enthalpy. The units for a standard reaction enthalpy is kj/mol. q is typically just j or kj but i belive in order to get that you would just multiply by the number of moles in the system, but they are essentially the same value. Enthalpy, without being a standard just has units of joules.
