Standard Enthalpies of Formation

Postby PriyaKohli3B » Sat Jan 09, 2016 3:35 pm

When we are writing out our equation with elements in their standard form, should we just put the state of the standard form or the name of the actual standard form? For example, the standard form of C is graphite so when I am writing my equation should I write C(graphite) or C(s)?

In the course reader, Lavelle has an example using C(s) in which it is referring to the standard form graphite. I believe C(s) would be the best and most efficient way to write the form.
