Purpose of the Experiment Thermochemistry (Heat of Reaction) Determine the heat of neutralization for the reaction of a strong acid and base; and for a weak acid with a strong base. Determine the heat of fusion of ice.
Thermodynamic Definition of Enthalpy (H): H = E + PV E = energy of the system P = pressure of the system V = volume of the system Definition of Enthalpy What is the Heat of Reaction?
Recall, by definition a change in energy equals heat transferred (q) plus work (w): E = q + w Consider a process carried out at constant pressure. At constant pressure, work involves only a change in volume. We can then substitute -P V for w. E = q p - P V Then if we want to solve for the heat transferred, q p, at constant pressure, we simply rearrange the equation. q p = E + P V At Constant Pressure
Recall our original definition of enthalpy: H = E + PV Then for a change in enthalpy: H = E + (PV) If we set P constant, then: H = E + P V Since q p = E + P V Then H = q p The change in enthalpy, H, is then equal to the heat transferred at constant pressure, q p. Enthalpy = Heat Transferred
In a chemical reaction H = H products – H reactants If H >0, then q p >0 The reaction is Endothermic. Heat goes from the surroundings into the system. If H <0, then q p <0 The reaction is Exothermic. Heat goes from the system into the surroundings. An example of an exothermic reaction:
Heat Capacity, C “C” is an extensive property; so a large object has a larger heat capacity than a small object made of the same material. Using the Equation: Looking at the figures on the left, it can be seen that the temperature change is constant, but the heat absorbed by the larger object is greater. This results in a larger heat capacity for the larger object because more heat is absorbed.
Specific heat capacity: The energy (joules) required to raise the temperature of 1 gram of substance by 1 C Unit: J g -1 K -1 or J g -1 1 C -1 Molar heat capacity: The energy (joules) required to raise the temperature of 1 mol of substance by 1 C Unit: J mol -1 K -1 or J mol -1 1 C -1

Neutralization HCl aq + NaOH aq NaCl aq + H 2 O The reaction between an acid and a base which results in a salt plus water. Another example, cyanic acid and a hydroxide ion. If we use KOH, what salt will form? For example, hydrochloric acid and sodium hydroxide: acid + base salt + water
Heat of Neutralization Energy released by reaction = Energy absorbed by solution C s = q / [(mass) (T final -T initial )] Net ionic equation for neutralization: H + (aq) + OH - (aq) H 2 O(l) Specific heat capacity, C s, is defined as the quantity of heat transferred, q, divided by the mass of the substance times the change in temperature. A value of C s is specific to the given substance. q = C s (mass) (T final -T initial ) This can then be rearranged to solve for the heat transferred.
Enthalpy of Fusion (Melting) Enthalpy of Fusion is defined as the heat that is absorbed when the melting occurs at constant pressure. If the substance freezes, the reaction is reversed, and an equal amount of heat is given off to the surroundings; i.e., ΔH freez = - ΔH fus Melting (fusion) is an endothermic process solidliquid
Calorimetry Science of measuring heat based on observing the temperature change when a body absorbs or loses energy as heat. A calorimeter can be created by doing something as simple as inserting one Styrofoam cup inside another.
A Calorimeter may be used to determine the Heat Capacity, C s, of a material by measuring the temperature change when a known mass of the material at a higher temperature is placed in a known mass of water, usually at room temperature, and the system is allowed to reach a final intermediate temperature. Heat lost by hot object = Heat gained by cold water C s material (mass) material (T final -T initial ) material = C s water (mass) water (T final -T initial ) water Note: The heat capacity is related to the atomic mass and the intermolecular forces in the material. Calorimetry
A Calorimeter may be used in a similar manner to determine the enthalpy change associated with other processes, such as: Chemical reactions* (bond energies) Phase changes* (intermolecular forces) Mixing (intermolecular forces) Solvation (intermolecular forces) Calorimetry *These are the processes you will be learning today.
Have you ever wondered about how they determine the calories in food? They use a Bomb Calorimeter. It can be used to determine the caloric value of food and of fuels, by burning them in excess oxygen and measuring the amount of heat evolved. A basic combustion reaction: An example of an exothermic reaction from the S&T mining dept: C x H y + O 2 (excess) --> x CO 2 + y / 2 H 2 O + heat Bomb Calorimeter
The Computer Display Setup for Today’s Experiments Parameters: Temperature: o C Time: seconds (Check: Probe should display o C resting on lab bench and should read higher when warmed by hand.) If probe displays less than 15 o C, notify your TA.
Temperature change is important. Exact time is not important. Temperature will drift toward ambient before and after reaction Transition will be faster if NaOH is added rapidly and well stirred. (That is you will have a more nearly vertical temp. rise) HCl (or acetic acid) and NaOH mixed, reaction begins Reaction is completed, heat released, begin slow cooling to ambient The Heat of Neutralization Experiments Mixture not stirred fast enough – Resulting line is not vertical.
IMPORTANT: Use only 1 ice cube, the entire cube must melt. The Heat of Fusion Experiment Ice cube added Melting complete, begin slow warming Mixture not stirred fast enough – Resulting line is not vertical.
