Given the following data:

C2H2(g) + 5/2 O2(g) --> 2CO2(g) + H2O(l)      ΔH= -1300.kJ

C(s) + O2(g) --> CO2(g)                                   ΔH= -394kJ

H2(g) + 1/2O2(g) --> H2O(l)                                 ΔH= -286kJ

Use Hess’s Law to calculate ΔH for the reaction

2C(s) + H2(g) --> C2H2(g)

Step 1

The given equation are with their enthalpy of reaction are

AH=-1300. kJ
C2H2(g)+5/2 O2(g) --> 2CO2(g) +H20(1)
C(s) +O2(g)CO2(g)
AH= -394KJ
H2(g) 1/202(g) > H20()
AH= -286KJ
