Assignment 2 Due on Oct. 2
A question starts with Problem x.y are problems from Inorganic
Chemistry by Swaddle. In your solutions, please point out errors in
the problem statements if you find any.
Problem 2.1: You need to correlate thermodynamic quantities.
The relationship allows you to see how they affects the chemical equilibria.
Problem 2.2: You are required to consider the kinetic factor of
chemical reactions. Part (c) asks you to apply the concept of activation
energy in an industrial process.
Problem 2.6: You learn how to make use of tabulated thermodynamic data
in doing this problem.
The bond energy (kJ) for H2, F2, and HF are 436,
158 and 568 kJ
respectively, calculate the enthalpy (energy) of
H2(g) + F2(g) = 2 HF(g).
Comment on this result in terms of DHf
from the data given in a Chemical Thermodynamic Data Table.
Evaluate DG for HF(g).
