sodium metal reacts violently with water to produce aqueous sodium hydroxide and hydrogen gas. calculate the enthalpy change for this reaction.

    Write the equation and balance it.
    Look up Hf for the products and reactants.
    Then DHrxn = (n*DHfproducts) - (n*DHfreactants)

    is it:
    Na + H2O -> ????
    Hf is hafnium.
    i don't know this stuff.

  • Chemistry Help!! -

    2Na + H2O ==> H2 + 2NaOH
    Hf is Hf = heat formation and hafnium is not involved with anything your are doing.
    Look up the delta Hf values (they should be listed in your text as delta Hof then
    follow the equation I gave you. DHf stands for delta Hof.

    I made a typo trying to type the sub subscripts and superscripts.
    .....should be listed in your text as delta Hof then follow......

  • Chemistry Help!! -

    i balanced the equation:
    2 Na + 2 H2O = H2 + 2 NaOH.
    What delta Hf value am i suppose to look up?
