Units for Enthalpy

Postby Chloe Alviz 1E » Tue Feb 11, 2020 3:24 pm

What are the units for enthalpy, exactly? Can they be written in the form of KJ/mol?

Yes, many times they will be in KJ/mol. Pay attention though because sometimes it can be written in just kilojoules.

The units for Enthalpy or delta H are in KJ/mol. If they are written in just KJ, 1 mole is assumed or there is a predefined mass.
