🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Brush's class at FSU.
Use the standard reaction enthalpies given below to determine ΔH°rxn for the following reaction:
2S(s) + 3O2(g) → 2SO3(g) ΔH°rxn = ?
Given: SO2(g) → S(s) + O2(g) ΔH°rxn = +296.8 kJ
2SO2(g) + O2(g) → 2SO3(g) ΔH°rxn = -197.8 kJ
a. -494.6 kJ
b. -692.4 kJ
c. -791.4 kJ
d. -98.8 kJ
e. -293.0 kJ
To find the ΔHrxn, we need to use the Hess's Law where we have to rearrange the given equations to get the desired reaction
