Enthalpies of different Reactions

Enthalpy or Heat of Combustion: It is the amount of heat evolved or decreased in enthalpy when one mole of a substance is completely oxidized. Organic compounds containing only carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen are burnt to gaseous carbon dioxide and liquid water. For example, C2H6(g) + 3.5O2(g) → 2CO2(g) + 3H2O(l); ΔH = − 372.8 kcal Read more about Enthalpies of different Reactions[…]
