For 4D.21, I have the exact numbers and equation correct according to the book, but my final answer was different from the book answer manual. The book says the correct answer is "-138.18 kJ" but I got -709.84 kJ.

Am I making a minor calculation mistake based on how I put it into the calculator? Is anyone else getting this error?

I'm getting -138.13 so it might just be a calculation error!

I got -138.18 kJ like the solution manual. You probably have a small calculation error. Are all the signs correct and did you multiply each one by the correct number of moles?

Also getting -138.18, so probably inputting into the calculator wrong.
