Top fuel dragsters and funny cars burn nitromethane as fuel
to the balanced combustion equation:
2 CH3NO2(l ) + 32O2( g)¡2 CO2( g) + 3 H2O(l ) + N2( g)
ΔH °rxn = -1418 kJ
The enthalpy of combustion for nitromethane is -709.2 kJ>mol.
Calculate the standard enthalpy of formation (ΔH °f ) for nitromethane.
