Exothermic and endothermic reactions:
A reaction that gives out energy and warms the surroundings is exothermic.
A reaction that takes in energy and cools the surroundings in endothermic.
This can be plotted on an enthalpy level diagram:

Standard enthalpy change of combustion:
Standard enthalpy…

Measuring standard enthalpy change of formation

Working out 2 + 3 will therefore have the same result.

Products are usually molecules or compounds Read the question to find out the reaction to tell you what goes where.
3 will always have a negative value because the indirect cycle follows 3…
