Question:

Calculate {eq}\Delta H_{rxn} {/eq} for the reaction {eq}5C + 6H_2 \to C_5H_{12} {/eq} using the following information.

{eq}C_5H_{12} + 8O_2 \to 5CO_2 + 6H_2O; \Delta H {/eq} = -3505.8 kJ

{eq}C + O_2 \to CO_2; \Delta H {/eq} = -393.5 kJ

{eq}2H_2 + O_2 \to 2H_2O; \Delta H {/eq} = -483.5 kJ

Hess's Law:

Hess's Law is useful as it is the way to measure non-measurable enthalpy changes in both physical and chemical changes. By using the enthalpy changes of its multiple reactions as per this rule, one can easily measure the enthalpy change of an overall reaction.
