In a three reactions system the first two reactions are endothermic with DeltaH values of 138kj and 241kj. if the final reaction is exothermic what is the minimum value of DeltaH3 that would make the overall reaction exothermic? explain your reasoning.

i beleive the minimum value of DeltaH3 would be -379 because if the final reaction is exothermic it would be releasing the heat absorbed?

  1. I almost agree with you. However, if you add 241 and 18 and -379 you end up with zero and zero is neither endo nor exo so I would make that -380 so as to have a delta H = a negative number.

    Yes, both are endothermic; however, the first one is between gases and the second one APPEARS to be (it isn't balanced with charge) a dissociated of a solid. Therefore, the first one will be much more sensitive to pressure changes

    I'm having a hard time understanding Endothermic and Exothermic reactions, like their standard format and stuff. For Exothermic reactions the heat is getting released into the surroundings, the products will be less than the
