# Given the following data, determine Delta Hrxn for the reaction: Br(g) + Cl(g) arrow BrCl(g)...

## Question:

Given the following data, determine {eq}\Delta H_{rxn}^{\circ}{/eq} for the reaction:

{eq}Br(g) + Cl(g) \to BrCl(g){/eq}

- {eq}\frac{1}{2}Br_2(l) \to Br(g); \Delta H^{\circ}{/eq} = 111.75 kJ

- {eq}\frac{1}{2}Cl_2(g) \to Cl(g); \Delta H^{\circ}{/eq} = 121.38 kJ

- {eq}\frac{1}{2}Br_2(l) + \frac{1}{2}Cl_2(g) \to BrCl(g); \Delta H^{\circ}{/eq} = 14.7 kJ

## Hess' Law of Constant Heat Summation:

The enthalpy change of any unknown thermochemical reaction (reaction associated with some heat release or absorb) can be estimated by simple addition of enthalpy change of multiple reactions. This is defined in Hess' law of constant heat summation.
