Calculation of )Hf0 for Mg2+(aq.)
1. Assume the heat capacity of the final solution is 3.92 J K-1 g-1. Using the mass of the HCl
solution, calculate qcontents from equation (4.6). Calculate qsystem from equation (4.5).
2. Calculate the moles of Mg2+ produced, nrxn. Be sure to identify the limiting reagent in the
3. Calculate the molar enthalpy change, )H0 rxn, for reaction (4.19). This is the same as )H0f for
Mg2+(aq.).Calculation of )Hf0 for MgO(s)
Calculation of delta Hf for MgO(s)
1. Again, assume the heat capacity of the final solution is 3.92 J K-1 g-1. Calculate qcontents and
2. Calculate the number of moles of Mg2+ (aq.) produced, nrxn.
3. Calculate the standard molar enthalpy change for reaction (4.20).
4. Average the values for )H0 rxn for part I and average the values for )H0
rxn for part II. Using these average values, calculate )H0f of MgO(s).
1. Why are both the mass and the volume of the hydrochloric acid solution recorded?
2. In this experiment it was assumed that the calorimeter neither absorbed nor released heat
(i.e., qcalorimeter = 0), but this is almost certainly not the case. Would the measured value of
)H0f (Mg2+(aq.)) be more or less exothermic if the calorimeter absorbed heat (that is, if
qcalorimeter > 0)? Explain why.
3. Explain why )H0rxn, for reaction (4.19) is the same as )H0f for Mg2+(aq.).
4. Use tabulated standard molar enthalpies of formation (from the textbook) to calculate )H0
for the following reactions:
1. 2NO(g) + O2(g) v 2NO2(g)
2. 2H2S(g) + 3O2(g) v 2SO2(g) + 2H2O(g)
3. Fe2O3(s) + 3CO(g) v Fe(s) + 3CO2(g)
5. Calcium sulphate reacts with carbon (in the form of graphite) according to the reaction:
CaSO4(s) + 1/2C(s, graphite) v CaO(s) + SO2(g) + 1/2CO2(g)
When 204.2 g of CaSO4(s) reacts with excess graphite at 298.15 K and 1 atm pressure, 456
kJ of heat are absorbed. Calculate the standard molar enthalpy of formation of CaSO4(s).
