Determine the heat of combustion of ethyl alcohol
(C2H6O).
the right answer is -1238.43 kj/mol. Help with process thank you

  • chem 101 -

    2C2H6O + 6O2 ==> 4CO2 + 6H2O
    heat comb = (n*dHf CO2 + n*dHf H2O) - (2*dHf ethanol) = ?
    dHf = heat formation = delta Hf. These are in the appendix in your text/notes.
