Unformatted text preview: Enthalpy change for a reaction is equal in magnitude, but opposite in sign, to H for the reverse reaction The enthalpy change for a reaction depends on the state of the reactants and products Chapter 5 Thermochemistry Calorimetry Heat Capacity and Specific Heat Specific heat (s) = q/ (m*T) q= mcT Constant Pressure Calorimetry q soln = -q rxn Bomb Calorimetry Hess Law If a reaction is carried out in a series of steps, H for the overall reaction will equal the sum of the enthalpy changes for the individual steps Enthalpies of Formation H rxn = nH f (products) - mH f (reactants) Foods and Fuels Fuel value of a substance is heat released when 1 g is combusted...
