least show that you've attempted the question before you post it here, in future.

C2H6 (g)  + (7/2)O2 (g) -> 2CO2 (g) + 3H2O (l)

dH = [2(-393.5) + 3(-285.8)] - [(-84.68) + (7/2)(0)]

I figured it out before i got an answer, but thanks for trying. In the future I'll show my work too. It just seemed alot of typing atthe time.
