    Find the enthalpy change for the following reaction using the bond enthalpy data below:

    C2H6+3 1/2 O2 -> 2CO2 + 3H2O

    C-C= 348
    C-H= 412
    O=O= 496
    C=O= 743
    O-H= 463

    really lost what to do especially cause the data the question says dosent say enthalpy change of combustion on enthalpy change formation

    also why is it mixing in with organic chemistry when they give us a normal equation , someone help plz

    It's a question where you need to do
    enthalpy change = energy needed to break bonds- energy given out making bonds.

    It is not Hess's law

    You work out the energy used for bonds breaking
    The energy released from new bonds being made then use the equation I have stated above.
    This may have been a method you used at GCSE

    This is not Hess's law, this is bond enthalpies. Remember break-make (minus the bonds made from the bonds formed).
