    The question is: the enthalpy change of combustion for methane is -890kJmol-1 calculate the energy released when 3.2g of methane burn completely.

    right so I know you need to work out the reaction first which is
    CH4 +2 O2 ---> CO2 +2 H2O
    but what do you do after that?



    btw, Happy New Year guysss!

    You are given the energy change PER MOLE so find out how many moles is 3.2g

    Yeah so the number of moles = 3.2/16 = 0.2 but I don't know what to do after that :/

    Well, if 1 mole releases 890 kJ of energy how much energy will 0.2 moles release?
