    When do you multiply the given enthalpy value, if the number of moles is not 1?

    For example, If the equation for one part of the cycle is:

    H2SO4(aq) + 2NaOH (s) ---> H2SO4 (aq) + 2NaOH(aq)

    And you had an enthalpy value of -50KJ mol for this reaction. Would it have to be multiplied by 2, as there are 2 moles of NaOH?

    Thanks

    For enthalpy change, you need to multiply the standard enthalpy values(kJ/mol) by no.of mol hence giving you kJ. But suppose this enthalpy change is for the combustion of a compound X, then standard enthalpy of combustion for X = enthalpy change(kJ)/no of mol of X combusted(in mol)

    does it just say enthalpy value of -50 kJ/mol or does it have a specific name as stated in the question?
