  • To explain enthalpy of formation, internal energy of reaction, enthalpy of reaction, and adiabatic flame temperature
  • To explain energy relations for reactions under different conditions

14.1 Introduction

We have considered ideal gases and ideal gas mixtures in our analysis so far. The analysis was based on the assumption that ideal gases and ideal gas mixtures could be considered as pure substances which is a reasonable assumption in that experimental results ...
