Enthalpy - What are the thermodynamic standard conditions?

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Enthalpy What are the thermodynamic standard conditions? * 298K, 1 atm pressure, concentration of 1mol per dm3 What is enthalpy change? * The heat change measured at a constant pressure and temperature. Define standard enthalpy of formation: * The enthalpy change when a single mole of compund is formed from its elements under standard conditions of 298K and 1atm pressure with all the reactants in their standard states. Why is enthalpy change for exothermic reactions negative? * Because energy has been released to the surroundings. The products therefore have a lower enthalpy than the reactants and the final enthalpy is less than the initial enthalpy. Classify as endothermic or exothermic: * NaOH dissolves in water & temp. ...read more.

Organic chemistry Electrophile * A species which seeks out negative centres. Can accept a lone pair of electrons. Nucleophile * A species which seeks out positive centres. Has a lone pair of electrons which can be used to form a dative covalent bond. Radical * A species with an unpaired electron. Are highly reactive. Formed by homolytic fission. Making Alcohol from Alkenes Condensation Reaction * Reagents: concentrated H2SO4 catalyst * Conditions: Room Temperature, then add water and warm under reflux Oxidation Reaction * Reagents: Alkaline Potassium Manganate(VII) solution * Conditions: Room Temp. * Other notes: The manganate(VII) reduces to manganate(VI) and goes from purple to green. Oxidation Reaction 2 * Reagents: O2, silver catalyst * Conditions: 2500C Hydration Reaction * Reagents: steam, H3PO4 catalyst * Conditions: 3000C, 60 atm pressure ...read more.

    If you look at the bonds formed it can be seen that four of these O-H bonds are formed quadrupling the value (460x4)=1840KJ/mol. Also two of the strongest bonds are formed which are C=C bonds these each have a bond energy value of 740KJ/mol.

    By not doing this, the teacher was unable to fulfil the aim of this investigation as the affect of concentration on the rate of reaction cannot be determined, and by not repeating the experiment, average readings, which are more accurate than single readings, were not calculated.

    o Measuring cylinder; this will be used to measure 200cm� of water, with increments of 1cm3 to a good degree of accuracy. o 0-100�C thermometer; this will be used to measure the waters temperature rise; I have chosen a 0-100�C because it's more accurate; it has increments of 1�C which will result in a smaller percentage error.
