Homework Help: Chemistry

You wish to know the enthalpy change for the formation of liquid PCl3 from the elements shown below.

P4(s) + 6 Cl2(g)--> 4 PCl3(l) ΔHf = ?
The enthalpy change for the formation of PCl5 from the elements can be determined experimentally, as can the enthalpy change for the reaction of PCl3(l) with more chlorine to give PCl5(s).

P4(s) + 10 Cl2(g)--> 4 PCl5(s) ΔHrxn= -1774.0 kJ

PCl3(l) + Cl2(g)--> PCl5(s) ΔHrxn = -123.8 kJ
Use these data to calculate the enthalpy change for the formation of 1.50 mol of PCl3(l) from phosphorus and chlorine.
