Bond Bond Energy (kJ/mol)
1.If the value of the standard entropy change, ∆Sº for the reaction is -232.7 joules per mole∙Kelvin, calculate the standard molar entropy, Sº, of C2H6 gas.
2.Calculate the value of the standard free-energy change, ∆Gº, for the
reaction. What does the sign of ∆Gº indicate about the reaction above?
3.Calculate the value of the equilibrium constant for the reaction at 298 K.
4.Calculate the value of the C C(triple bond) bond energy in C2H2 in kJ/mole.
