Determine the heat of reaction

  1. May 30, 2007 #1
    Can somebody help me with this please?

    CO + NO2 ----> CO2 + NO the activation energy for the forward reaction is 135 kJ/mol of CO reacted.
    a) determine the heat of reaction
    b) fron the data given , and the Delta Hr for the reaction , determine the activation energy for the reverse reaction.

    Do you have any ideas about the problem? Do you remember Kinetics and flipping equations and what was involved there?

    I know the molecules in the reaction need 135kJ to start the reaction. But when determining heat of reaction, the number is not even close to 135 kJ.
