Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Chloe on Tuesday, April 30, 2013 at 1:25am.

The following thermodynamic data was obtained for an unknown compound. Delta Hvap = 31.3 kj/mol and Delta S Vap= 79.7 kj/mol .Calculate the normal boiling point of this compound in Celcius..

Thank you!

dG = dHvap - TdSvap
dG at boiling point = 0; therefore,
dHvap = TdSvap
You know dHvap and dSvap, solve for T. Check to make sure you typed the problem correctly. Check that dSvap is really in kJ/mol (or is it J/mol instead).
T will be in kelvin, convert to C.


- DrBob222,
The dSvap is J/(k*mol). I subtract the dHvap and dSvap, I got 44 Kelvin then I convert it to celsius 229.15 C. My final answer doesn't seems right. Help me please!
