This occurs at standard temperature and pressure. Express your answer in joules. The heat of formation of water is -285.8 kJ/mol. Is this an endothermic or exothermic reaction? Explain your reasoning and show all your work to receive full credit. Could anyone point me in the right direction with this? I am going back through my chemistry lessons but really have no idea where to begin with this. Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thanks.
