# Class 11 Chemistry MCQ – Enthalpy Change, ∆rH of a Reaction – Reaction Enthalpy

This set of Class 11 Chemistry Chapter 6 Multiple Choice Questions & Answers (MCQs) focuses on “Enthalpy Change, ∆rH of a Reaction – Reaction Enthalpy”.

1. The standard state of a substance is considered when the temperature is 298 k and the pressure is ____________
a) 1 ATM
b) 1 bar
c) 1 Pascal
d) 760 mm HG

Explanation: All the standard states of a substance are considered when the temperature is 298 Kelvin and the pressure is 1 bar. 1 bar = 0.987 atmospheric pressure = 10000 Pascal = 750.0617 mm of Mercury.

2. All the enthalpies of fusion are positive.
a) true
b) false

Explanation: Fusion is a process of conversion of liquid to solid the enthalpy is energy that is required for a process. As the melting of a solid is endothermic, the enthalpies of fusion are positive so the above statement is true.

3. Consider that, a ball is immersed in water at room temperature and then taken out having 18 grams of water on it, how much amount of energy is required to dry that water at room temperature?
a) 41.43 KJ/mol
b) 49.53 KJ/mol
c) 41.3 KJ/mol
d) 41.53 KJ/mol

Explanation: Heat required to eliminate water : n x ΔvapH = (1 mol) × (44.01 kJ mol–1) = 44.01 kJ mol-1. Δvapor = ΔvapH – ΔnRT = 44.01 kJ mol-1 – 1×8.314 J/K-mol x 298 k x 10-3 = 41.53 KJ/mol. So the amount of energy needed is 41.53 KJ/mol.

4. Calculate the internal energy change when 2 moles of water at 0 degrees converts into ice at 0-degree centigrade?
a) 12 KJ per mole
b) 6 KJ per mole
c) 1 KJ per mole
d) 102 KJ per mole

Explanation: Energy change when 1 mol of water at 0-degree centigrade changes into ice at 0 degrees in centigrade is 6 kJ/mol, So the internal energy change when 2 moles of water at 0 degrees converts into ice at 0 degrees is 12 kJ/mole.

5. What is a change in energy if 18 grams of water is heated from room temperature to 20 degrees above it?
a) 1.50 KJ
b) 0.506 KJ
c) 1.06 KJ
d) 1.506 KJ

Explanation: We know that Q = msΔT, where Q is the energy,m is the mass of water, s is the specific heat of water and T is the temperature. So the change in energy required here = 18 g x 4.184 J/g-K x 20K = 1.506KJ.

6. When a chemical reaction is reversed the value of enthalpy is reversed in sign.
a) true
b) false

Explanation: For example, the formation of ammonia has an enthalpy of -91.8 KJ per mole and the decomposition of ammonia has an enthalpy of + 91.8 KJ per Mol. So the above statement that when a chemical reaction is reversed the value of enthalpy is reversed in the sign is true.

7. Consider the equation 2 H2 + O2 → 2 H2O, what does the 2 in the coefficient of H2O molecule represent?
a) number of particles
b) the number of molecules
c) number of moles
d) number of atoms

Explanation: In a balanced thermochemical equation, the coefficients always refer to the number of the moles (but never molecules) of reactants and products involved in a reaction so 2 in the coefficient of H2O refers to the number of the moles of water.

8. What is the unit of standard enthalpy of fusion or molar enthalpy of fusion?
a) KJ Mol
b) KJ per Mol
c) Mol per KJ
d) 1/KJ Mol

Explanation: The enthalpy change that occurs during melting of one mole of a solid substance in the standard state is called standard enthalpy of fusion or molar enthalpy of fusion, it is represented by the symbol ΔfusH, the units of this are KJ per Mol.

9. Which of the following is not an application of Hess’s law?
a) determination of heat of formation
b) determination of heat of transition
c) determination of Gibb’s energy
d) determination of heat of hydration

Explanation: The following are the applications of Hess’s law; determination of heat of formation, determination of heat of transition and determination of heat of hydration, also to calculate bond energies.

10. ΔHr = Σ ΔHf[products] – Σ ΔHf[reactants].
a) true
b) false

Explanation: The equation ΔHr = Σ ΔHf[products] – Σ ΔHf[reactants] says that the enthalpy of a reaction is the difference between the enthalpy of products and enthalpy of reactants. The above statement regarding enthalpy is true.
