# The total volume of hydrogen gas needed to fill the Hindenburg was 2.0 × 108 L at 1.0 atm and 25°C. Given that Δ H f ∘ for H2O(l) is −286 kJ/mol, how much heat was evolved when the Hindenburg exploded, assuming all of the hydrogen reacted to form water?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: From the given data, amount of heat evolved or molar heat of fusion should be determined.

Concept introduction:

• By combining the three gaseous laws namely Boyle’s law, Charles’s law and Avogadro’s law a combined gaseous equation is obtained. This combined gaseous equation is called Ideal gas law.

According to ideal gas law,

PV=nRT

Where,

P = pressure in atmospheres

V= volumes in liters

n = number of moles

R =universal gas constant ( 0.08206L×atm/K×mol )

T = temperature in kelvins

By knowing any three of these properties, the state of a gas can be simply identified,

Number of moles of the gas can be determined by,

n=PVRT

• Molar heat of fusion can be calculated as follows.

Heatreleased(kJ)=Numberofmole(n)×molarenthalpyoffusion

Explanation

Explanation

To determine: the number of moles of hydrogen

Number of mole (n) =8.2×106molH2

According to ideal gas equation,

PV=nRT

Number of moles of the gas can be determined by,

n=PVRT
