4CO(g) + 8H2(g) → 3CH4(g) + CO2(g) + 2H2O(_)

Use the following thermochemical equations to determine the enthalpy change of the reaction.

C(graphite) + 2H2(g) → CH4(g) + 74.8 kJ

CO(g) + 12O2(g) → CO2(g) + 283.1 kJ

H2(g) + 12 O2(g) → H2O(g) + 241.8 kJ

C(graphite) + 12O2(g) → CO(g) + 110.5 kJ

H2O(l) + 44.0 kJ → H2O(g)

this is required to use the Hess's law, and the manipulation of the equations and mutiplying to get the coeeficients from the orginal question, however i am getting -641kJ...the answer is wrong..any suggestions of what to do..

below is my answer:

multiplied the 1st equation by 3

no change to the second equation

multiplied the 3rd equation by 2

mutiplied the 4th equation by 4 and flipped the equation

fifth equation multiplied by two and flipped

- chemistry - hess's law (check + help) -
**DrBob222**, Wednesday, June 8, 2011 at 3:11pmIt appears to me that the first equation x 3 gives 3C(graphite) and the fourth x 4 and reversed gives 4C(graphite) so those don't cancel. I stopped there.
