    Is anyone able to solve this please? Thanks Giventhe following information:
    C(s) à C(g), DH = +715 kJmol-1Cl2(g) à 2Cl(g), DH = +242 kJmol-1C(s) + 2Cl2(g) à CCl4(g), DH = -135.5 kJmol-1
    Calculate the average bond dissociation enthalpy ofa C-Cl bond.

    You should write the equation for dissociation of a carbon tetrachloride molecule (giving C + 4Cl) and then construct this using the equations that you are given...

    Do the same operation for the enthalpy as you manipulate the equations and this will lead you to the enthalpy change for CCl4 --> C + 4Cl

    Finally divide by four to get the average for each C-Cl bond.
