or gain of heat. This change in heat is called enthalpy. The goal of this experiment is to calculate enthalpy for three different reactions. To calculate the enthalpy of a reaction, a calorimeter is used to measure the change in heat energy from mixing different substances. The change of temperature is found by comparing the change in temperature of the system to the temperature of the surroundings. For a calorimeter, a Styrofoam cup place in a beaker is used. The Styrofoam of the cup minimizes heat loss and the beaker keeps the cup in a stable position. Hot and cold water were mixed in the calorimeter to calibrate it and determine its heat capacity, which comes into play in the three reactions tested.…

• ## Determining The Enthalpy Of Combustion Of Kerosens.

calculations are included which will show how the values for the enthalpy of combustion of the fuel sources are deduced. Graph 1: Scatter plot showing the change in the temperature of 80.0mL of distilled water in the tin calorimeter during and after the combustion of the kerosene for the first conducted trial. The linear trendline was created for the last three data points, where the water was allowed to cool, which was then extrapolated backwards to account for the total decrease in the…

• ## Analysis Of The Enthalpy Of Formation Of Magnesium Oxide

the enthalpy of formation of magnesium oxide was found by adding together three reactions, as shown in the table below. Experiments were performed to obtain the ΔHrxn value of the first two reactions in the table, which were reactions 4 and 5 respectively in the experimental section, while the ΔHrxn for the third reaction in the table was provided. Using the ΔT obtained experimentally, heat energy (q) was determined using the equation q = mCΔT + CΔT where q was the heat, m was the mass of the…

• ## 2M Hcl Chemistry Lab Report

The theoretical value for enthalpy calculated using the given values table 5 was -55.22 kJ. The enthalpy of reaction three calculated using the experimental data or the temperature changes recorded was done by using “q” values and limiting reactant molarity and thus that value was found to be -60.70 kJ. The third calculation using Hess’s Law of summation was found using the experimental enthalpies for reactions one and two which were then combined to calculated a value for reaction three of…

• ## Refrigeration Essay

while the pressure increases. Consequently, the refrigerator absorbs heat at the extremely low temperature if the pressure remains insignificant. Furthermore, it rejects heat at a higher temperature while the pressure is increased. To generate a closed cycle, the high pressure condensed liquid needs to come back to the low-pressure condition for evaporation. The Reversed Carnot Cycle represents the ideal refrigerator where heat remains in a constant low-temperature source at whereas it rejects…

• ## Change In Enthalpy

exothermic reactions and have a positive change in enthalpy. Moreover, chemical reactions that absorb energy are endothermic, which have a negative change in enthalpy. Since the energy released is usually heat, keeping track of the heat flow in reactions will help determine the change in enthalpy of a reaction. Observing the measurement of heat changes is known as calorimetry; hence, in this lab a calorimeter was used to measure the changes in enthalpy. A calorimeter is well-designed when it is…

• ## Hess's Law Lab Report

Then using the enthalpies found for reactions two and three I would find the enthalpy of reaction one the ideal reaction. Both reaction two and three are exothermic but reaction one is endothermic this is due to overall reaction one is building more bonds than it is breaking. The formula for finding the enthalpy of reaction one is as follows the change in enthalpy of reaction two combined with the inverse change in enthalpy of reaction three results in the enthalpy of reaction one. This…
