Today we will have the opportunity to use a nested-cup calorimeter to explore heat of two processes: dissolving of crystals and metal-acid displacements.


Warm Up 84 (30 min)

  1. What measurements are essential to determine the enthalpy (kJ/mol) for a salt dissolving?  What do these measurements let us calculate? (be specific)
  2. As a group, create a procedural flow-chart to follow as you perform today’s lab.  You will ONLY have access to this flow chart so make sure to be thorough.

Lab 7.2 – Calorimetry (60 min)
