Example 8.7

Postby Kassandra Molina 2B » Sat Jan 20, 2018 4:29 pm

Why is the equation to figure the change in enthalpy =(2mol)*q/n ? I understand the 2 mol comes from benzene but why do we have to do q/n?

The units for ΔH are Joules. If you are trying to find the change in enthalpy (ΔH) for 2 mol of benzene, you need to multiply by q (J) in the numerator and n (mol) in the denominator to end up with the ΔH in Joules.

I hope this answered your question!
