  • question_answer The enthalpy of combustion of \[{{C}_{6}}{{H}_{6}}\]is 3250 kJ when 0.39 g of \[{{C}_{6}}{{H}_{6}}\]is burnt in excess of oxygen in an open vessel, the amount of heat evolved is

    A)  8.32 kJ                       

    B)  12.34 kJ

    C)  16.25 kJ                     

    D)  24.74 kJ

    Correct Answer: C

    Solution :

    Combustion of benzene can be represented as follows: \[\underset{78}{\mathop{{{C}_{6}}{{H}_{6}}}}\,+{{O}_{2}}\to 6C{{O}_{2}}+{{H}_{2}}O+3250\,kJ\] 70 g of\[{{C}_{6}}{{H}_{5}}\]produce 3250 kJ heat. 1 g of will produce \[\frac{3250}{78}\,kJ\]heat. 39 g will produce \[=\frac{3250}{78}\times 0.39\,kJ\] = 16.256 kJ heat is liberated. Note: Enthalpy of combustion is the amount of heat liberated when one mole of a substance is burnt in excess of air. Hence, the correct option is [c].
