    Hi
    Regarding energetics, if a question says that a table gives some standard enthalpies of formation, and then it asked u to uses the data to calculate the enthalpy of combustion. Do I find the formation or combustion??? Because I did combustion in a test and I got it wrong cos apparently it was meant to be formation. Idk. Please help me, I'm rly confused. Thanks x

    You calculate the enthalpy of combustion by making a Hess cycle with formation data

    Thanks, I think I've done it. I was just checking to make sure was finding the right value. But I do have a question regarding another question.

    A enthalpy of formation equation:
    N2 1/2O2=N2O

    It gives enthalpy change of reaction:
    C N2O=CO N2. = -193
    C 1/2O2=CO. = -111

    It says find formation so ik
    formation=products - reactants
    I'm not sure what to do tho. Pls could u help me by using the formation=products - reactants instead of drawing the cycle cos I get rly confused that
    way Thanks

    **sorry it's meant to be
    C+N2O=CO2+N2. and
    C+1/2O2=CO2

    I edited it but the adds are not showing up

    Thank you so much, that rly helped because I don't rly understand the Hess cycle.

    No problem

    By the way, try avoid doing the products minus reactants thing as it will only confuse you more. The ONLY time you should use it is in Gibbs free energy calculations (year 13 topic)

    This book might be of interest to you. It helped me a great deal and now I'm on track to getting A*.
