Example text

Use of the enthalpy of combustion in calculating the enthalpy of a reaction. The overall enthalpy of reaction is unaffected by this alteration, but ∆Hreaction may now be calculated using Hess’s law (note the change of sign as compared to the previous expression): ∆Hreaction=−Σ∆Hc(products)+Σ∆Hc(reactants) The advantage of this method is that enthalpies of combustion are more readily obtained than heats of formation. The disadvantage is that it can only be applied to reactions involving combustible substances, a restriction which generally also excludes materials in solution.

An example is the temperature or the density of a substance. An important classification of thermodynamic properties is whether they are state functions or path functions. If the value of a particular property for a system depends solely on the state of the system at that time, then such a property is referred to as a state function. Examples of state functions are volume, pressure, internal energy and entropy. Where a property depends upon the path by which a system in one state is changed into another state, then that property is referred to as a path function.

Fitting of this expression to experimental data allows determination of molecular shapes. For spherical molecules, F(a, b, c)=1. Diffusion When a solute is present in a solvent, then the tendency of that solute is to spread evenly throughout the solvent in a series of small, random jumps. This thermally energized process is known as diffusion. The fundamental law of diffusion is Fick’s first law. The rate of diffusion of dn moles of solute, dn/dt, across a plane of area A, is proportional to the diffusion coefficient, D, and the negative of the concentration gradient, −dc/dx, thus: The diffusion coefficient for a spherical molecule, of radius r, is very simply related to the viscosity of the solvent: D=kBT/(6πηr) where kB is the Boltzmann constant and T is the temperature.
