###### Problem Details

The enthalpy of decomposition of NO2Cl is -114 kJ. Use the following data to calculate the heat of formation of NO2Cl from N2, O2, and Cl2

NO2Cl (g) → NO2 (g) + 1/2Cl2(g)    ΔH°rxn = -114 kJ 1/2

1/2N2 (g) + O2 (g) → NO2 (g)    ΔH°f = 33.2 kJ

1/2 N2 (g) + O2 (g) + 1/2 Cl2 (g) → NO2Cl (g)    ΔH°f  = ?
