Determining temperature of a reaction (7.51)
Posted: Sun Jan 18, 2015 11:31 pm
Problem 7.51 asks for the change in internal energy for the reaction of 1.00 mol OF2 with hydrogen that produces O2 and HF. When calculating the work you use the ideal gas law PV=nRT. What I don't understand is how you determine temperature if it is not given in the problem. The solutions manual uses 298 K as the temperature. Where did that come from? Thanks.
