Heats of Reaction from Standard Enthalpies of Formation • The enthalpy change of a reaction is equal to the total formation enthalpy of the products minus that of the reactants. is the mathematical symbol meaning “the sum of”, and m and n are the coefficients of the substances in the chemical equation . .

A Problem to Consider • Large quantities of ammonia are used to prepare nitric acid according to the following equation: 4 NH 3 (g) + 5 O 2 (g) 4 NO(g) + 6 H 2 O(g) • What is the standard enthalpy change, Δ H 0 for this reaction?
