how to calculate delta h for the reaction
2B(s)+3H2(g)arrow B2H6(g)given the following data:
2B(s)+3/2O2(g)arrowB2O3(s) deltaH=1273kj
B2H6(g)+3O2(g)arrowB2O3(s)+3H2O(g) deltaH=2035kj
H2(g)+1/2O2(g)arrowH2O(l) deltaH=286kj
H2O(l)arrowH2O(g) deltaH=+44kj

Use equation 1, reverse equation 2, multiply equation 3 by 3 and multiply equation 4 by 3. Add them. Don't forget to reverse the sign of equations you reverse.

jk

Why multiply equation 4 by 3?

Wouldn't there be a 3/2 left over?
