Interpretation: The enthalpy change for the given reaction should be determined using the bond dissociation enthalpies.
Bond dissociation enthalpy:
Bond energy or more correctly the bond dissociation enthalpy is the enthalpy change when breaking a bond in a molecule with the reactant and products in the gas phase.
The process of breaking bonds in a molecule is always endothermic, so for bond breaking is always positive.
