Just as in Mass Balances. . . Stoichiometric coefficients of reactants are NEGATIVE and products are POSITIVE Remember our friend ξ?

ΔH r Energy is required to form bonds and released when breaking bonds Total amount of energy required or released determines enthalpy of reaction – Can also find ΔU r = ΔH r – RT(Σν I,p -Σν I,r ) BUT: for open system (i.e. chemical process in plant), ΔH = Q+W

ΔH r • ΔH r IS temperature dependant and (weakly) pressure dependant Reference State ( products and reactants at 25 o C, 1atm) Measurement problems - reaction may not proceed at reference T What can we do to get around these?
