MCQ

Select the most appropriate option.

If the standard enthalpy of formation of methanol is –238.9 kJ mol–1 then entropy change of the surroundings will be _______.

#### Options

• –801.7 J K–1

• 801.7 J K–1

• 0.8017 J K–1

• –0.8017 J K–1

#### Solution

If the standard enthalpy of formation of methanol is –238.9 kJ mol–1 then entropy change of the surroundings will be 801.7 J K–1.

Explanation:

For standard state, temperature = 298 K

triangle "S"_"surr" = - (triangle "H")/"T" = - ((- 238.9  "kJ"))/(298 "k")

= + 0.8017 kJ K-1

= 801.7 J K-1

Concept: Enthalpy (H)
