Extra ΔH QUESTIONS for Advanced Level Chemistry Enthalpy Calculation Revision Questions A selection of practice exam calculation questions is presented dealing with enthalpy of formation, enthalpy of combustion, standard enthalpy measurements and data and problem solving using Hess's Law including enthalpy of reaction via bond enthalpy calculations. Enthalpy questions are set out on this page and the logical deductions of the answers are set out on another page. I hope this will help you to be more proficient in solving enthalpy data problem calculations. EMAIL
