Molar mass needs to be provided two digits after decimal point 0 When calculating molar masses use the rules for addition to determine the significant figures Exothermic heat is coming out of reaction Endothermic heat is going into reaction The heat energy released or absorbed by a reaction is called the heat of reaction or the enthalpy change and is represented by the symbol delta H Reactions tend to occur if there is an overall release of energy during the reaction Being exothermic delta H is negative is one way that a reaction can release energy Endothermic reactions have a positive delta H Entropy a measure of the degrees of disorder in a system A change in entropy is designed by the symbol delta S Energy is dispersed as entropy increases How do you judge the change in entropy o Solids
