Enthalpy changes in chemical reactions

Enthalpy changes in chemical reactions

The enthalpy changes in common chemical reaction can be calculated.

Let’s calculate the heat of chemical reactions. The chemical reaction can be break into formation reactions for the compounds involved, and the enthalpy change upon chemical reaction can be expressed with the enthalpy of formations for the compounds involved by the Hess’s law.
