2. What is enthalpy change of formation?
- Tthe enthalpy change when solutions of an acid and an alkali react together under standard conditions to produce 1 mole of water.

3. Which of the following is used to calculate the change in enthalpy?
- Σ(heat content of the products) x Σ(heat content of the reactants).
- Σ(heat content of the products) - Σ(heat content of the rectants).
- Σ(heat content of the reactants) - Σ(heat content of the products).
4. The difference in the heat contents of the products and the reactants is called...?
- Heat of the reaction
- Heat of calorimetry
5. What does Hess' Law state?
- If a reaction can take place by more than one route and the initial and final conditions are the same, the total enthalpy change is the same for each route.
- When a system in dynamic equilibrium is subjected to a change, the point of equilibrium will shift to minimise the change.
- No materials are being added or taken away from a system in equilibrium, and no external conditions, such as temperature or pressure, are altered.
