Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Hannah on Tuesday, February 14, 2012 at 10:16am.

Mg(s) + 2HCl(aq) -> MgCl2(aq) + H2(g) delta H1?

MgO(s) + 2HCl(aq) ->MgCl2(aq) + H2O(l) delta H2?

To make these equations add up to the formation reaction of MgO, you will need to include the following:

H2(g) + 1/2O2(l) delta H =-241.8 kJ

Using Hess's Law and manipulating these three equations and their respective enthalpy values you can solve for deltaH formation of MgO.

The equations above are already balanced so so I do not understand what they mean by manipulating the equations. To find the delta H value for the first two is this when I use the sum of products - the sum of reactants?
