### Why is the reaction enthalpy the same as change in enthalpy for each of the reactants and products?

How come the $\Delta H$ of the reaction is the same $\Delta H$ for each of the reactants and products? For example, in an equation, the $\Delta H$ of the reaction is $244 \,\mathrm{kJ}$. When my ...

### Reactions with a positive Delta H and a negative Delta S are said to be nonspontaneous at ALL temperatures. But what if the temperature IS low enough? [closed]

What I mean is, that if you use G = H-TS and make the temperature low enough, couldn't you make any reaction spontaneous? For example, you have a Delta H of 85 kJ and a Delta S of -66 J/K. I've been ...
