## The Best Answer for what is the enthalpy for the following reaction? C2H4 + H20 --> C2H5OH?

C2H4 + H20 --> C2H5O

formation enthalpy of ethane -> –83.8 kJ/mol

formation enthalpy of water -> −291.83 kJ/mol

formation enthalpy of ethanol -> –277.7 kJ/mol

Since the equation is properly balanced, then the enthalpy change is just

-277 + 291 + 83 = 97

So, the enthalpy of the reaction is just 97 kJ/mol

2CO2+3H2O→C2H5OH+3O2 ΔH=1370 kJ/mol

C2H4+3O2→2CO2+2H2O ΔH=−1410 kJ/mol

--------------------------------------

C2H4+H2O→C2H5OH ΔH=−40 kJ/mol

I think this is the correct answer for what is the enthalpy for the following reaction? C2H4 + H20 --> C2H5OH?
