HIGHER CHEMISTRY REVISION. Unit 3 :- Hess’s Law 1. The Thermite Process involves the reaction between aluminium and iron(III) oxide to produce iron and aluminium oxide. This highly exothermic reaction, which generates so much heat that the temperature of the mixture rises to around 3000 o C, is used for repairing cracked railway lines as shown in the diagram below. (a) Suggest why this process is suitable for repairing cracked railway lines. (b) The enthalpy changes for the formation of one mole of aluminium oxide and one mole of iron(III) oxide are shown below. 2Al(s) + 1 ½ O 2 (g) Al 2 O 3 (s) H = kJ mol -1. 2Fe(s) + 1 ½ O 2 (g) Fe 2 O 3 (s) H = -825 kJ mol -1. Use the above information to calculate the enthalpy change for the reaction: 2Al(s) + Fe 2 O 3 (s) Al 2 O 3 (s) + 2Fe(s) (a) The iron formed is molten and it fills the crack – it then solidifies. (b) Leave first equation and reverse the second equation. H = (-1676) +(+825) = -851 kJ
2. The enthalpy of combustion of hydrogen sulphide is -563 kJ mol -1. Use this value and the enthalpy of combustion values in the data booklet to calculate the enthalpy change for the reaction: H 2 (g) + S(s) H 2 S(g) (rhombic) H 2 + ½ O 2 H 2 O H 1 = -286 kJ S + O 2 SO 2 H 2 = -297 kJ H 2 S + 1 ½ O 2 H 2 O + SO 2 H 3 = -563 kJ To form the equation shown we need H 1 + H 2 - H 3 And so H = (-286) + (-297) + (+563) = -20 kJ
3. A calorimeter, like the one shown, can be used to measure the enthalpy of combustion of ethanol. The ethanol is ignited and burns completely in the oxygen gas. The heat energy released in the reaction is taken in by the water as the hot product gases are drawn through the coiled copper pipe by the pump. (a) Why is the copper pipe coiled as shown in the diagram. (b) The value of enthalpy of combustion of ethanol obtained by the calorimeter method is higher than the value obtained by the typical school laboratory method. One reason for this is that more heat is lost to the surroundings in the typical school laboratory method. Give one other reason for the value being higher with the calorimeter method. (c) In one experiment the burning of g of ethanol resulted in the temperature of 400 cm 3 of water rising from 14.2 o C to 31.6 o C. Use this information to calculate the enthalpy of combustion of ethanol. (a) Coiling the pipe increases its surface area and ensures as much heat is transferred into the water as possible. (b) Using oxygen ensures complete combustion of ethanol. H=-cm T= x 0.4 x 17.4= kJ 0.98 g of ethanol kJ So 1 mol, 46g, of ethanol kJ
4. Potassium hydroxide can be used in experiments to verify Hess’s Law. The reactions concerned can be summarised as follows. KOH(s)KCl(aq) KOH(aq) (a) State Hess’s Law. (b) Complete the list of measurements that would have to be made in order to calculate H 2. (i) Mass of potassium hydroxide (ii) (iii) (iv) (c) What solution must be added to the potassium hydroxide solution in order to calculate H 3 ? +HCl(aq) +H 2 O(l) H1H1 H2H2 H3H3 (a)The enthalpy of a reaction is independent of the reaction pathway. (b)Mass of water, initial water temperature, final water temperature. (c) Hydrochloric acid.
5. The equation for the enthalpy of formation of propanone is: 3C(s) + 3H 2 (g) + ½ O 2 (g) C 3 H 6 O(l) Use the following information on enthalpies of combustion to calculate the enthalpy of formation of propanone. (1) C(s) + O 2 (g) CO 2 (g) H 1 = –394 kJ mol -1. (2) H 2 (s) + ½ O 2 (g) H 2 O(l) H 2 = –286 kJ mol -1. (3) C 3 H 6 O(l) + 4O 2 (g) 3CO 2 (g) + 3H 2 O(l) H 3 = –1804 kJ mol -1. To form the equation we want we need:- 3 x Eqn(1) + 3 x Eqn (2) + Reverse Eqn(3) H = (3 x –394) + (3 x –286) + (+1804) = -236 kJ
6. Some rockets have a propellant system which combines dinitrogen tetroxide with methylhydrazine. 5N 2 O 4 + 4CH 3 NHNH 2 xN 2 + yH 2 2O + zCO 2 (a) State the values of x, y and z required to balance the above equation. (b) Draw the full structural formula for methylhydrazine. (c) Methylhydrazine burns according to the following equation. CH 3 NHNH O 2 CO 2 + 3H 2 O + N 2 H = –1305 kJ mol -1. Use this information, together with information from page 9 of the data booklet, t calculate the enthalpy change for the following reaction. C + N 2 + 3H 2 CH 3 NHNH 2 (a)x = 9, y = 12 and z = 4 (b)H H H H-C-N –N-H H (c) (1) CH 3 NHNH O 2 CO 2 + 3H 2 O + N 2 H 1 = –1305 kJ mol -1. (2) C + O 2 CO 2 H 2 = –394 kJ mol -1. (3) H 2 + ½ O 2 H 2 O H 3 = –286 kJ mol -1. To form the equation we want we need Reverse (1) + (2) + 3 x (3) H = (1305) + (-394) + (3 x –286) = 53 kJ
