Calculate the enthalpy change for following reaction:C(s) + 2H2(g)--> CH4(g)

Bond diss energy: H-H is 436 and for C-H is 415

Hf of C (g) is 715KJ/mol

well... this is off the top of my heat, but I think this is how you do it:

The C(s) is in its standard state so its formation is zero.

Enthalpy change = sum[bonds broken] - sum[bonds formed]

[0 + 2(436)] - [4(415)] = 872 - 1660
= -788

*someone double check my work plz, I might be wrong but I think Im on the right track*

yes but going from solid to gas reqires the Hf to be added. Same concept as when u compute the total Q reqired to take an ice cube at -10 C to 110 C. You compute the energy needed to bring ice from -10 C to 0, then the H at 0 (the plateau), then 0 to 100, then the H at 100, then 100 to 110. The solid state of C is 0, but the H of formation of C gas reqires energy, a change of state.

Thanks alot for the explanation
