Reaction of sulphur with calcium carbonate

Can sulphur react with calcium carbonate to form sulphur trioxide and calcium carbide, as the energy of 3(S=O) is greater than ((C=O) +2(C-O))? EDIT: i forgot to say that this is in an oxygen-free ...

Oxidation of glucose

By oxidation of 9 g of glucose it is released 150 kJ of heat. Calculate the standard enthalpy of derivation of glucose (in kJ/mol), if the given enthalpies of the reactants are ΔfH (H2O(l)) = -285,8 ...

Anomalous trend in formation enthalpy of alkali metal halides

I read that in alkali metal halides, the formation enthalpy for fluorides become less negative as we go down the group, whereas the reverse is true for chlorides, bromides and iodides. Why is it so? ...

Why does the energy required to break a bond decrease as the number of bonds increase?

I noticed that the energy to break a single C bond is $348\ \mathrm{kJ}$, to break a double C bond would be $612\ \mathrm{kJ}$, and to break a triple C bond would be $837\ \mathrm{kJ}$. How come the ...

Is the reaction of silver nitrate and copper endothermic or exothermic?

Is the following reaction endothermic or exothermic and why? $$\ce{2 AgNO3 + Cu -> Cu(NO3)2 + 2 Ag}$$ EDIT: I have a feeling that it is exothermic due to the fact that it is spontaneous and will ...

Theoretical temperature change in lime hydration

Calcium oxide (quicklime) and water have an exothermic reaction $\ce{CaO + H2O \rightarrow Ca(OH)_2} \quad \quad \Delta H^{\circ}_f=-65.3 \; \mathrm{kJ \cdot mol^{-1}}$ Assume that I have 1 kg of ...
Beryllium carbonate is reported to be unstable under normal conditions and should only be kept in a atmosphere of $\ce{CO2}$. Why and how this stability is maintained? Why does this compound decompose ...
Why do compounds form bonds? I've got three words for you: Less potential energy. I don't remember a case of positive lattice enthalpies $\ldots$ - My comment This makes me wonder. I remember seeing \$...
