Units for Reaction Enthalpy

Postby JamieVu_2C » Sun Feb 09, 2020 2:19 am

In the textbook solutions, for some answers has the units of kJ and for other answers it has the units of kJ/mol. Are kJ and kJ/mol interchangeable as the units for the standard reaction enthalpy?

I believe the standard reaction enthalpy should always be in kJ/mol. If it is just the enthalpy value, it is in kJ.
