Change in enthalpy value for a chemical reaction is positive is because,there loose of electron(s) in the reaction, and that will change the enthalpy of that particular element from negetive,neutral to positive.

will a catalyst change the enthalpy of a reaction in a chemical reaction?

No, a catalyst will not change reaction enthalpy. If it does so, then it is NOT a catalyst but a reactant in stead!


True or False A large positive value of entropy tends to favor products of a chemical reaction?

True, a large positive value of entropy tends to favor products of a chemical reaction. However, entropy can be offset by enthalpy; a large positive value of enthalpy tends to favor the reactants of a chemical reaction. The true measure to determine which side of a chemical reaction is favored is the change in Gibbs' free energy, which accounts for both entropy and enthalpy, as calculated by: Change in Gibbs = Change in Enthalpy - Temp in Kelvin * Change in Entropy A negative value of Gibbs free energy will always favour the products of a chemical reaction.


What is molar enthalpy change?

Molar enthalpy change is the change in the transfer of heat in a reaction per mol.


What is the sign of the enthalpy change for an endothermic reaction?

Endothermic reaction: In an endothermic reaction, the products are higher in energy than the reactants. Therefore, the change in enthalpy is positive, and heat is absorbed from the surroundings by the reaction therefore enthalpy change show positive sign in a endothermic reaction..
