Lecture 21, spring 2009 ENGR 145, Chemistry of Materials Case Western Reserve University Standard-State Enthalpy H ° T [OGC §12.5] Absolute values of H (and U ) cannot be measured or computed Only ∆H (and ∆U) are measurable Must define a zero point for the enthalpy scale (analogy: sea level serves as zero point for elevation) Convention: Elements in standard states at 298.15 K have H ° 298.15 = 0 What is meant by “standard state”? For solids and liquids: the thermodynamically stable form at 1 atm pressure For gases: gas at 1 atm pressure Standard enthalpy of formation of a compound, ∆H° f : enthalpy change on forming a compound from its elements in their stable states at 25 °C and 10 5 Pa (~1 atm) 2
