(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The standard enthalpy of reaction has to be determined.

Concept Introduction:

The standard enthalpy of formation is the enthalpy change for the formation of 1mol of the compound directly from its component elements in their standard states.

Enthalpy change for the reaction ΔrH0=ΣnΔfH0(products)-ΣnΔfH0(reactants)

### Explanation of Solution

Given,

ΔfH0(Ca(OH)2)= -987kJ/mol

ΔfH0(CaCO3)=-1207kJ/mol

ΔfH0(H2O)=-241.83kJ/mol

ΔfH0(CaO) =-636kJ/mol

ΔrH0=[(1mol)(-1207kJ/mol)+(1mol)(-241

(b)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The heat evolved or absorbed has to be determined.

Concept Introduction:

The standard enthalpy of formation is the enthalpy change for the formation of 1mol of the compound directly from its component elements in their standard states.

Enthalpy change for the reaction ΔrH0=ΣnΔfH0(products)-ΣnΔfH0(reactants)

The change in enthalpy, ΔH in kJ per mole of a given reactant for the reaction can be calculated as:

ΔrH=enthalpy changenumber of moles

ΔrH=ΔHnumber of moles
