Enthalpy computation
« on: July 04, 2021, 11:25:03 AM »
Before the introduction of chlorofluorocarbons, sulfur dioxide (enthalpy of vaporization, 6.00 kcal/mol) was used in household refrigerators. What mass of SO2  must be evaporated to remove as much heat as evaporation of 1.00 kg of CCl2F2 (enthalpy of vaporization is 17.4 kJ/mol)? The vaporization reactions for SO2 and CCl2F2 are SO2(l) :rarrow: SO2(g) and CCl2F2(l) :rarrow: CCl2F2(g) respectively.

 My answer: Molar mass of CCl2F2=120.9135 g
 So, 1.00 kg of CCl2F2=[itex]\frac{1000g}{120.9135 g}=8.27[/itex] moles
ΔH°vap of CCl2F2=17.4 kJ/mol

So, for 8.27 moles of CCl2F2, total ΔH°vap is 17.4 kJ × 8.27 moles= 143.9 kJ


Molar mass of SO2 =64.0638 g,
ΔH°vap of SO2 is  25.1208 kJ/mol


[itex] \frac{143.9 kJ}{25.1208 kJ}[/itex]= 5.73 moles of SO2

5.73 moles × 64.0638 g = 367  g   of SO2 must be evaporated.

Is this answer correct?

Any science consists of the following process.
 1) See 2) Hear 3) Smell if needed 4) Taste if needed
5) Think 6) Understand 7) Inference 8) take decision [Believe or disbelieve, useful or useless, healthy or unhealthy, cause or effect, favorable or unfavorable, practical or theoretical, practically possible or practically impossible, true or false or  any other required criteria]
