Hf and Hc

Postby Tyler Angtuaco 1G » Fri Feb 07, 2020 8:52 pm

Question 4D 15 lists values I assumed was heat of formation, but labels them H with subscript c. What does this symbol mean and is it correct to assume it means the same as heat of formation?

Hc just means it is the enthalpy of combustion, so there must be oxygen in the reactants.

you can use Hc the same way you would use Hf mathematically but Hc stands for enthalpy of combustion

Technically, they could be used the same way in the equation, but H subscript c is the enthalpy of combustion.
