Answer:

17.5 KJ

Explanation:

In all this kind of problems the first step is to balance the equations, in this case this is a very simple one, because if you add the two equations without any change you would obtain the asked one.

(1) #N_(2(g)) +O_(2(g)) rarr 2NO_((g)) Delta H_1 = +"180.7 kJ"#

(2) #2N_2O_((g)) rarr O_(2(g)) + 2N_(2(g)) Delta H_2 = -"163.7 kJ"#

(3) #2N_2O_((g)) rarr 2NO_((g)) + N_(2(g)) Delta H_2 = "? kJ"#

then #(1) + (2) = (3) #

as #DeltaH_1 + DeltaH_2 = DeltaH_3 #

#:.DeltaH_3 = +17.5KJ#
