Thermal chemistry was intended to display that chemical reaction and phase changes involve energy. The energy of heat was presented when a change in temperature difference was evaluated. Chemical reactions in a calorimeter were used to determine the amount of heat produced by a reaction. Reactions that absorb heat were noted as endothermic, and reactions that release heat were noted as exothermic. These principals were based off of Hess’s Law. The goal of the experiment was to monitor chemical reactions using a calorimeter to monitor changes in temperature. The changes in temperature were to be used to find the amount of heat released or absorbed.

∆H Part A
The experiment consisted of taking various amounts of the reactants, putting them into a calorimeter to monitor changes in temperature. The: Initial, Final, and Change in temperature, were used to calculate the amount of energy released or absorbed by using Hess’s equation. The goals of the experiment were met. Part I ended with a chart of all the...
