  • Q:

    Which of the following holds false regarding enthalpy?

     

    A

    Enthalpy is considered a state function.

    B

    The pathway that a reactant takes to become a product has no bearing on the enthalpy of this transformation.

    C

    Change in enthalpy for a reaction is the sum of the enthalpies of formation of the products minus the sum of the enthalpies of formation of the reactants.

    D

    In a reaction A --> B, one can calculate the enthalpy change if you only know the enthalpy of formation of product B.
