Chem 161-2009 12 th Chapter 9 problems: 20,53,55,57,63,67,74,98,99,100 Chapter 9 problems: 75, 77, 83 Chapter 10 problems: 3,21,23,25,29 Self-Assessment Questions 20. Given the bond energies, N-to-O bond in NO, 628 kJ/mol; H-H, 435 kJ/mol; N-H, 389 kJ/mol; O-H, 464 kJ/mol, calculate ∆H for the reaction 2 NO(g) + 5H 2 (g) → 2NH 3 (g) + 2H 2 O(g) Note: I do this problem in the same way that we have done ∆H reaction = ΣH formationproducts - ΣH formationreactants but here we use “enthalpy of bond formation” rather than “enthalpy of formation”. ΔH reaction = ΣH bondformationproducts - ΣH bondformationreactants The enthalpy of bond formation is the reverse sign of enthalpy of bond energy. One is the energy to form a bond; the other is the energy to break a bond. Reactants Products ∆H bf ∆H bf 2 NO = 2 x -628 6 NH = 6 x -389 5 H 2 = 5 x -435 4 OH = 4 x -464 ((6 x -389) + (4 x -464)) – ((2 x -628) + (5 x -435)) = -759 kJ reaction = ΣH bondsbroken - ΣH bondsformed Reactants Products ∆H be ∆H be 2 NO = 2 x +628 6 NH = 6 x +389 5 H 2 = 5 x +435 4 OH = 4 x +464 ΔH reaction = ((2 x 628) + (5 x 435)) – ((6 x 389) + (4 x 464)) = -759 kJ Note: This answer is different than in the Solutions Manual. The Solutions Manual is using the formula backwards, and getting the reverse answer (+759 kJ). More Lewis Structures 53. Write the simplest Lewis structure for each of the following. Comment on any unusual features of the structures. (a) NO (b) ClF 3 (c) BCl 3 (d) SeF 4 (a) . . . . . N = O : Unusual feature: free radical (b) Unusual feature: Central atom has more than an octet of electrons (an expanded shell ). 1

Also, S2F2 is shown as my structure in S2F2- i@3Dchem.com . I have no reason to believe that the Solutions Manual structure is correct. (b)
