Problem- Methanol is toxic because it is metabolized in a two-stop process in vivo to formic acid (HCOOH). Consider the following overall reaction under standard conditions: O2(g) + CH3OH(l) -> HCOOH(l) + H2O(l) +1019.6 kJ

a. Is this reaction endothermic or exothermic?

b. What is the value of Hrxn for this reacton?

c. How much heat would be absorbed or released if 60.0 g of methanol were metabolized in this reaction?
