(Redirected to Joule per mole article)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The joule per mole (symbol: J/mol, J·mol−1) is an SI derived unit of energy per amount of material. Energy is measured in joules, and the amount of material is measured in moles.

Physical quantities measured in J·mol−1 are usually free energies, such as:

For convenience and due to the range of magnitudes involved, these quantities are nearly always quoted in kJ/mol. For example, heats of fusion and vaporization are usually of the order of 10 kJ/mol, bond energies are of the order of 100 kJ/mol, and ionization energies of the order of 1000 kJ/mol.

1 kJ/mol is equal to 0.239 kcal/mol or 10.4 meV per particle. At room temperature (25 °C, 77 °F, or 298.15 K) 1 kJ/mol is equal to 0.4034 kBT.

Simple English

A kilojoule per mole is a way of measuring the amount of heat needed for something. It is the number of kilojoules needed to make the reaction in one mole of substance.
