1 Hess’s Law Germain Henri Hess

2 Hess’s Law “In going from a particular set of reactants to a particular set of products, the change in enthalpy is the same whether the reaction takes place in one step or a series of steps.”

3 Hess’s Law Example Problem Calculate  H for the combustion of methane, CH 4 : CH 4 + 2O 2  CO 2 + 2H 2 O Reaction  H o C + 2H 2  CH kJ C + O 2  CO kJ H 2 + ½ O 2  H 2 O kJ Step #1: CH 4 must appear on the reactant side, so we reverse reaction #1 and change the sign on  H. CH 4  C + 2H kJ

4 Hess’s Law Example Problem Calculate  H for the combustion of methane, CH 4 : CH 4 + 2O 2  CO 2 + 2H 2 O Reaction  H o C + 2H 2  CH kJ C + O 2  CO kJ H 2 + ½ O 2  H 2 O kJ CH 4  C + 2H kJ Step #2: Keep reaction #2 unchanged, because CO 2 belongs on the product side C + O 2  CO kJ

5 Hess’s Law Example Problem Calculate  H for the combustion of methane, CH 4 : CH 4 + 2O 2  CO 2 + 2H 2 O Reaction  H o C + 2H 2  CH kJ C + O 2  CO kJ H 2 + ½ O 2  H 2 O kJ CH 4  C + 2H kJ C + O 2  CO kJ Step #3: Multiply reaction #2 by 2 2H 2 + O 2  2 H 2 O kJ

6 Hess’s Law Example Problem Calculate  H for the combustion of methane, CH 4 : CH 4 + 2O 2  CO 2 + 2H 2 O Reaction  H o C + 2H 2  CH kJ C + O 2  CO kJ H 2 + ½ O 2  H 2 O kJ CH 4  C + 2H kJ C + O 2  CO kJ 2H 2 + O 2  2 H 2 O kJ Step #4: Sum up reaction and  H CH 4 + 2O 2  CO 2 + 2H 2 O kJ

7 Calculation of Heat of Reaction Calculate  H for the combustion of methane, CH 4 : CH 4 + 2O 2  CO 2 + 2H 2 O  H rxn =   H f (products) -   H f (reactants) Substance  H f CH kJ O2O2 0 kJ CO kJ H2OH2O kJ  H rxn = [ kJ + 2( kJ)] – [-74.80kJ]  H rxn = kJ
