Textbook Question

Acetic acid (CH3CO2H), whose aqueous solutions are known as vinegar, is prepared by reaction of ethyl alcohol (CH3CH2OH) with oxygen: CH3CH2OH(l) + O2(g) → CH3CO2H(l) + H2O(l) Use the following data to calculate ∆H° in kilojoules for the reaction: ∆H°f [CH3CH2OH(l)] = -277.7 kJ/mol ∆H°f [CH3CO2H(l)] = -484.5 kJ/mol ∆H°f [H2O(l)] = -285.8 kJ/mol
