Consider the combustion of 1 mole methane (CH4) in air at an equivalence ratio of 1.0.

a) Write the reaction equation assuming complete combustion and Determine the Enthalpy for this reaction

Reaction equation assuming complete combustion for methane:

CH4(g) + 2(O2(g) + 3.76N2(g) → CO2(g) + 2H2O(l) + 7.52N2(g)

Enthalpy of Reaction for this reaction may be calculated:

∆H = 2∆Hof(H2O) + ∆Hof(CO2) - ∆Hof(CH4)

From the table:

∆Hof(H2O) = -285.830 kJ/mol

∆Hof(CO2) = -393.509 kJ/mol

∆Hof(CH4) = -74.87 kJ/mol

∆H =  2 * (-285.830 kJ/mol) + (-393.509 kJ/mol) – (-74.87 kJ/mol) = -890.299 kJ/mol
