Standard Enthaly of Formation

Postby Hannah 3c » Sun Jan 10, 2016 5:13 pm

In the course reader on page 19, it briefly explains the standard enthalpy of formation. I am just confused about how the delta H for reaction equals -555.38 kJ and how you go from that value to the final -277.69 kJ.mol?

The standard enthalpy of formation is the standard reaction enthalpy for the formation of 1 mole of a substance. Since there are 2 moles of the product in the reaction given in the course reader, you divide the standard reaction enthalpy by 2.
