bond enthalpy  - enthalpy change for breaking of a bond   strength of covalent bond determined by amount of energy needed to break it always positive value DHrxn = (bond enthalpies of bonds broken) - (bond enthalpies of bonds formed) derived for gaseous molecules, only averaged values Find the DH for 2C2H6 + 7O2>> 4CO2 + 6H2O   C2H6 CO2 H2O Given bond enthalpies: o C-H 413 kJ/mol o C-C 348 kJ/mol o C=O 799 kJ/mol
