    How do you work it out.
    Here is a question:
    Mean bond enhalpy values/KJMol-1:
    H-H=436
    C=C=612
    C-C=348
    Use the following equation and data above to calculate the value for the C-H bond enthalpy in ethane?



    Thanks for any help in Advance

    There appears not to be a following equation.

    There appears not to be a following equation.
    Ofcourse:

    CHCH + H2 ---> CH3CH3 DeltaH=-136KJmol-1

    This equation is not true. . .

    This equation is not true. . .
    Its what they gave in the book, I just want to work out what the Average enthalpy is for the C-H bond

    In what way isn't the equation true? :lolwut:
    Unless I'm missing something painfully obvious, they're just reducing ethene :sly:

    Edit: On closer inspection, you might be right. Either we're missing some hydrogens, or there's a triple bond between the carbons :erm:

    If I drew the displayed formulas for CHCH + H2 ---> CH3CH3

    It would be:

    H-C---C-H (triple bond) + H-H (single) -----> H3-C-C-H3 (single)

    There aren't enough Hydrogens on the left

    you would need Delta H of a reaction involving the hydrogenation of ethene i believe to solve this not thought about it for long. you could then work out the bond breaking enthalpies reverse sign of foramation and the bonds formed and equate this to the overall delta H and do the maths, though i need pen and paper to show this and by the looks of it you dont have enough information.

    Jadpan You're correct

    The overall equation is :

    H-C=C-H + H-H ------------> H3C-CH3
    Ethene + Hydrogen ---------> Ethane


    DeltaH=-136Kjmol-1

    Use the equation above and the bond enthalpies bonded above on 1st post to calculate a value for C-H bond enthalpy in ethane.

    I'd suggest writing it like this:
    C=C + 2C-H + H-H ==> C-C + 6C-H
    As DeltaH=-136Kjmol-1
    You know that the difference between the bond enthalpies = delta H
