Calculate the value of DHo for the reaction 2 CH4 (g) -> C2H6 (g) + H2 (g) given the following thermochemical equations:
C2H2 (g) + H2 (g) -> C2H4 (g) delta = – 175.1 kJ

C2H6 (g) -> C2H4 (g) + H2 (g) Delta = + 136.4 kJ

C2H2 (g) + 3 H2 (g) -> 2 CH4 (g) Delta = – 376.8 kJ

a) + 65.3 kJ
b) + 338.1 kJ
c) – 415.5 kJ
d) + 688.3 kJ
dont understand help!

    This is an application of Hess' Law.
    You want to arrange the three equations given to obtain the desired equation.
    Reverse eqn 3 and 2 and add i eqn 1. When you reverse an equation, change the sign of delta H.
    If you follow my directions, see if you get the equation you want and add the delta H values (with changed signs). You should obtain one of the answers.

    Please also, help me set up this problem. Acetylene, C2H2, can be converted to ethane, C2H6, by a process known as hydrogenation. The reaction is C2H2(g)+2H2(g)⇌C2H6(g). Given the following data at standard conditions (all pressures …

    In the dehydrogenation of ethane two reactions take place: C2H6 => C2H4 + H2 C2H6 + H2 => 2CH4 The mass distribution of the product is: 27% C2H6; 33% C2H4; 13% H2; 27% CH4. 1. What was the conversion of C2H6 to CH4?
