Problem: Use the given average bond energy values to estimate ΔH for the following reaction in the gas phase. Cl2 + F2 → 2FCl DCl-Cl = 239 kJ/mol DF-F = 154 kJ/mol DF-Cl = 253 kJ/mol The units expected here are simply "kJ". The implication is that the reaction coefficients refer to numbers of moles.

Problem Details

Use the given average bond energy values to estimate ΔH for the following reaction in the gas phase. 

Cl2 + F→ 2FCl 

DCl-Cl = 239 kJ/mol 

DF-F = 154 kJ/mol 

DF-Cl = 253 kJ/mol 

The units expected here are simply "kJ". The implication is that the reaction coefficients refer to numbers of moles.
