The standard enthalpies of formation of

Question:

The standard enthalpies of formation of $\mathrm{Al}_{2} \mathrm{O}_{3}$ and $\mathrm{CaO}$ are $-1675 \mathrm{~kJ} \mathrm{~mol}^{-1}$ and $-635 \mathrm{~kJ} \mathrm{~mol}^{-1}$ respectively. For the reaction $3 \mathrm{CaO}+2 \mathrm{Al} \rightarrow 3 \mathrm{Ca}+\mathrm{Al}_{2} \mathrm{O}_{3}$ the standard reaction enthalpy $\Delta_{\mathrm{r}} \mathrm{H}^{0=}$ __________ kJ. (Round off to the Nearest Integer).

Solution:

(230)

Given reaction:

$3 \mathrm{CaO}+\mathrm{Al} \rightarrow \mathrm{Al}_{2} \mathrm{O}_{3}+3 \mathrm{Ca}$

Now, $\Delta \mathrm{H}^{\circ}=\Sigma \Delta_{\mathrm{r}} \mathrm{H}_{\text {Products }}^{\circ}-\Sigma \Delta_{t} \mathrm{H}^{\circ}$

$=[1 \times(-1675)+3 \times 0]-[3 \times(-635)+2 \times 0]$

$=+230 \mathrm{~kJ} \mathrm{~mol}^{-1}$
