5.3. FIRST LAW ANALYSIS OF REACTING SYSTEMS 163 5.3 First law analysis of reacting systems One can easily use the first law to learn much about chemically reacting systems. 5.3.1 Enthalpy of formation The enthalpy of formation is the enthalpy that is required to form a molecule from combining its constituents at P = 0 . 1 MPa and T = 298 K . Consider the reaction (taken here to be irreversible) C + O 2 CO 2 . (5.123) In order to maintain the process at constant temperature, it is found that heat transfer to the volume is necessary. For the steady constant pressure process, one has U 2 U 1 = 1 Q 2 1 W 2 , (5.124) = 1 Q 2 integraldisplay 2 1 PdV, (5.125) = 1 Q 2 P ( V 2 V 1 ) , (5.126) 1 Q 2 = U 2 U 1 + P ( V 2 V 1 ) , (5.127) = H 2 H 1 , (5.128) 1 Q 2 = H products H reactants . (5.129) So 1 Q 2 = summationdisplay products n i h i summationdisplay reactants n i h i . (5.130) In this reaction, one measures that 1 Q 2 = 393522 kJ for the reaction of 1 kmole of C and O 2 . That is the reaction liberates such energy to the environment. So measuring the heat transfer can give a measure of the enthalpy difference between reactants and products.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
