Question 1
(a) Calculate the standard enthalpy change (ΔHorxn) of the following reactions from their
standard enthalpies of formation:
(ΔHfo of C2H2(g) = 226.73 kJ/mol, ΔHfo of H2S(g) = -20.63 kJ/mol, ΔHfo of CO2(g) =
-393.51 kJ/mol, ΔHfo of H2O(l) = -285.83 kJ/mol, ΔHfo of SO2(g) = -296.83 kJ/mol)

## ΔHorxn = 2(-285.83) + 2(-296.83) – 2(-20.63) = -1124.06 kJ

according to the equation below?

Assume that the reaction takes place at standard state conditions.

## 1mol NH3  92.6 kJ

1.26 x 10 4 g NH3 x x   3.42 x 10 4 kJ
17.04 g NH3 2 mol NH3

The volumes of 1.0 mol of water and ice at 0 oC are 0.0180 L and 0.0196 L, respectively.

## w = -PΔV = - (1.0 atm)(0.0196 L – 0.0180 L) = - 0.0016 L∙atm

sheet of iron weighing 20.0 g and at a temperature of 55.6 oC. What is the final
temperature of the combined metals? Assume that no heat is lost to the surroundings (the
specific heat capacities of gold and iron are 0.129 J/g·K and 0.449 J/g·K, respectively).

## - (10.0)(0.129)(Tf – 18.0) = (20.0)(0.449)(Tf – 55.6)

Tf = 50.9 oC
