Hydrogen iodide, HI, is a colourless gas that can be made from the reaction of hydrogen, H2, and iodine, I2.

H2(g) + I2(g) 2HI(g) ΔH = −9 kJ mol−1
The activation energy for the forward reaction is 173 kJ mol−1.

(b) Calculate the activation energy, Ea, for the reverse reaction.
The answer for this was +182

(c) When the reverse reaction takes place hydrogen iodide, HI, decomposes to form iodine and hydrogen.
Calculate the enthalpy change when 336 dm3 of hydrogen iodide, measured at room temperature and pressure, decomposes.
Include the sign for enthalpy change in your answer.
enthalpy change .................................................... kJ [2]

The answer is +63KJ but I don't understand how they got this. Any help would be appreciated thanks!

What is the enthalpy change per mol of HI for the reverse reaction?

How many moles are actually involved?

I worked out the moles as 14
but idk about the enthalpy

Don't forget that the equation expressed (H2 + I2 <-> 2HI) involves 2 mol of HI.

There are 14 miles of 2HI.Now what I did was divide them by 2 which gave me 7 and then multiplied it by 9 (enthalpy change in the reverse reaction), which gave me 63 kJ/mol

Where did you get 14 moles from?
