Q. 41

<span lang="EN-US

Answer :

o The heat of combustion ∆Hc of graphite (i.e. carbon) is given as = 20.7 kJ for 1g of graphite (C).

1 mole of Carbon = 12 g

Hence the molar enthalpy change (enthalpy for 1 mole )

= (20.7 × 12 )= 248.4 KJ mol-1

Since the heat is evolved, the actual molar enthalpy change

= -248.4 KJ mol-1

o In combustion reactions, heat is always evolved i.e. it is an exothermic reaction. Hence the sign of ∆H for the reaction will always be negative (for the process to occur).
