(a) Is this reaction exothermic or endothermic? Justify your answer. (5 points) 

This reaction is exothermic, as heat energy is released during the process of change. The sign “-“ for ΔH proves this point.

 

(b) Calculate the amount of energy transferred when 310.0 g of AlCl3 forms. Include units and proper sign in your answer. Show all work. (10 points)

Molar mass of AlCl3 is 133.34 g/mol.

310.0 / 133.34 = 2.32 mol

2.32 mol x 705.63 kJ/mol = 1640.5 kJ (released)

Where 705.63 kJ/mol – the enthalpy of formation of AlCl3

(Aluminium chloride (data page) - Wikipedia)

 

(c) How many grams of Al are required when 500.0 J of energy are transferred? Include units and proper sign in your answer. Show all work. (10 points)

1 mol of AlCl3 corresponds to 705.63 kJ (705630 J) of heat transfer

500.0 J / 705630 J = 0.00071 mol

0.00071 mol x 26.98 g/mol = 0.019 g of AlCl3
