Hess’s Law 2200 H is well known for many reactions, and it is inconvenient to measure H for every reaction in which we are interested. However, we can estimate H using published H values and the properties of enthalpy.

Hess’s Law Hess’s law states that “[i]f a reaction is carried out in a series of steps, H for the overall reaction will be equal to the sum of the enthalpy changes for the individual steps.”
Hess’s Law Because H is a state function, the total enthalpy change depends only on the initial state of the reactants and the final state of the products.
