Enthalpy change of reaction

transformations. A reaction may release or absorb energy, and a phase may change, such as in melting and boiling. Thermochemistry focuses on these energy changes, particularly on the system's energy exchange with its surroundings. In combination with entropy determinations, it is used to predict whether a reaction is spontaneous or non-spontaneous, favourable or unfavourable. Chemical reactions can be divided into two based on the energy changes that occur during the reaction which are endothermic and exothermic...

Impure Sodium Carbonate

Volumetric Determination of Impure Sodium Carbonate (Na2CO3) Introduction: To determine the total amount of carbonate in unrefined sodium carbonate, soda ash, a titration is done using a standardized solution of HCl. Aqueous HCl is a strong acid and therefore almost completely disassociates into H+ and CL-. Therefore, when HCl is used in a titration, the H+ is the titrant. Carbonate in aqueous solution is able to accept a proton, i.e. it acts as a base. When carbonate accepts the H+ a bicarbonate ion...

A Lab experiment on how to determine the enthalpy change of the decomposition of Calcium Carbonate

The Enthalpy Change of the Decomposition of Calcium Carbonate _INTRODUCTION_ RESEARCH QUESTION: What is the enthalpy change of the decomposition of calcium carbonate? BACKGROUND: Enthalpy in chemistry can be thought of as the energy contained within the bonds, or the internal energy, but it is not heat and you can only measure changes in it. When bond bonds break in the reactants energy is given off, when bonds form, energy is absorbed. If the energy absorbed is less than the energy released...

Determination of Enthalpy Change of Neutralization

DETERMINATION OF ENTHALPY CHANGE OF NEUTRALIZATION IA Criteria Assessed: DCP CE MS Introduction When an alkali neutralizes an acid, a salt and water are formed. Aqueous hydrogen ions (H+(aq)) from the acid react with the hydroxide ions (OH- (aq)) from alkali, forming water. The identity of salt will depend on the nature of the acid and alkali used. H+(aq) + OH- (aq) → H2O(L) The combination of H+ and OH- ions in this way releases energy. In this practical, the enthalpy changes accompanying...

Determination of Enthalpy

the Enthalpy of a Chemical Reaction All chemical reactions involve an exchange of heat energy; therefore, it is tempting to plan to follow a reaction by measuring the enthalpy change (∆H). However, it is often not possible to directly measure the heat energy change of the reactants and products (the system). We can measure the heat change that occurs in the surroundings by monitoring temperature changes. If we conduct a reaction between two substances in aqueous solution, then the enthalpy of...

AIM: To carry out a lab experiment to decompose a carbonate using heat, also to carry out appropriate tests for the formation of products as a result of this decomposition. DISSCUSION: Carbonates are decomposed by heat into the corresponding oxides and carbon dioxide. The temperature of decomposition depends upon the activity of the metal; that is to say, the more active the metal, the more stable is the carbonate. Thus, the carbonates of sodium and potassium are stable at the highest temperature...

Hydrogen: the Fuel of the Future

Hydrogen: The Fuel of The Future By: Json Why are we as Americans so afraid to change? even if it is a change for the better? the world has been using oil coal and other petroleum products to power just about everything that moves for the last 150 years. yet most cars in the united states only get 10-20 miles a gallon and even the "good" ones can get only a petty 20-50 miles a gallon. so why do we put up with the inefficiency when there are far better alternatives out there? Such as hydrogen...

Observations of Chemical Changes

was to observe the macroscopic changes that occur in chemical reactions. From these observations, I learned to interpret the changes and have a better understanding of why I see different reactions between different mixtures. I was forced to look closely at each chemical reaction to see, hear, and smell the changes that occurred. I can infer that each element and chemical reacts different with each other. For example, potassium iodide reacts one way with sodium hypochlorite (brown/tan) and another...
