Set up a Hess's law cycle, and use the following information to calculate ΔH°f for aqueous nitiric acid, HNO3(aq). You will need to use fractional coefficients for some equations. 3 NO2(g) + H2O(l) → 2 HNO3(aq) + NO(g) ΔH° = -137.3 kJ 2 NO(g) + O2(g) → 2 NO2(g) ΔH° = -116.2 kJ 4 NH3(g) + 5 O2(g) → 4 NO (g) + 6 H2O(l) ΔH° = -1165.2 kJ NH3(g) ΔH°f = -46.1 kJ/mol H2O(l) ΔH°f = -285.8 kJ/mol
