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)
