Liquid hydrogen peroxide, an oxidizing agent in many rocket fuel mixtures, releases oxygen gas on decomposition.

2 H2O2(l) 2 H2O(l) + O2(g) Hrxn = -196.1 kJ
How much heat is released when 529 kg H2O2 decomposes?

( ......... ) KJ

*note ..watch sig figs .

my work:
• 2 H2O2(l) => 2 H2O(l) + O2(g) ΔHrxn = -196.1 kJ
Moles of H2O2 = mass/molar mass
= 529,000/34 = 15558.82 moles of H2O2 release 196.1 kJ of heat
Total heat released = 15558.82/2 x196.1 = 1525542.301 = 1.52554 × 10^6
= 1.53 x 10^6 kJ (3 significant figures)
am I correct?.....thank you.

  2. You really don't have 3 s.f. if you use 34 and not 34.0 for H2O2.
