    Answer: 480 kJ of energy is released when 3.5 mol of C_2H_4 reacts.

    Explanation:

    The balanced chemical reaction is:

    C_2H_4(g)+H_2(g)\rightarrow C_2H_6(g)  \Delta H=-137kJ

    Thus it is given that the reaction is exothermic (heat energy is released) as enthalpy change for the reaction is negative.

    1 mole of C_2H_4 on reacting gives = 137 kJ of energy

    Thus 3.5 moles  of C_2H_4 on reacting gives = \frac{137}{1}\times 3.5=480 kJ of energy

    Thus 480 kJ of energy is released when 3.5 mol of C_2H_4 reacts.
