A technician carries out the reaction at and 1.00 atm in a cylinder fitted with a piston and maintained at constant pressure. Initially, 0.030 mol SO_{2} and 0.030 mol O_{2} are present in the cylinder. The technician then adds a catalyst to initiate the reaction. (e) How much enthalpy is exchanged, and does it leave or enter the system?

The reaction enthalpy is -197.kJ. Why do you have to divide this value by 2 mol SO2 and then multiply it by .030 mol SO2? Also, how do you know to use the moles of SO2 instead of the moles of O2?

Since they give you the specific amount of moles then you're able to find the specific reaction enthalpy.
