6.3 Enthalpy (H) and Enthalpy change (ΔH) - enthalpy is a state function and is related to q. State functions are independent of any history of the system and depend only on its current state (which is determined by Temperature and Pressure variables). ΔH = Σ (ΔH products ) – (ΔH reactants ) - We will be using this equation at the end of the chapter. skip the section on enthalpy and internal energy (pg 233) 6.5 Thermochemical equations - Here we will be working with chemical equations that contain thermochemical data. 2Na (s) + 2H 2 O (l) 2 NaOH (aq) + H 2 (g) ΔH = -368.6 kJ Manipulating thermochemical equations: 1. When you swtich the reactants and products, the sign of the enthalpy change changes. 2 NaOH (aq) + H 2 (g) 2Na (s) + 2H 2 O (l) ΔH = 368.6 kJ 2. When you divide or multiply the coefficients in a chemical equation by an number, you must do the same to the enthalpy term

When you divide the above equation by 2…. NaOH (aq) + 1/2H 2 (g) Na (s) + H 2 O (l) ΔH = 184.3 kJ 3. The enthalpy change for a chemical reaction can be used as a conversion factor! Given the combustion of methane, how much heat (energy) is given off when 10.0 grams is combusted? CH 4 (g) + 2O 2 (g) CO 2 (g) + 2H 2 O (l) ΔH = -890.3 kJ NOTE: the enthalpy term is the amount of energy given off when ONE MOLE of methane is combusted...this is the CF we need for the problem.

    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.
