Hess’s Law Example 15-7: Given the following equations and DH o values calculate DH o for the reaction below. Hess’s Law The + sign of the DH o value tells us that the reaction is endothermic. The reverse reaction is exothermic, i.e., Hess’s Law Hess’s Law states : for any chemical reaction at standard conditions, the standard enthalpy change is the sum of the standard molar enthalpies of formation of the products (each multiplied by its coefficient in the balanced chemical equation) minus the corresponding sum for
