Lab #7 – Thermochemistry: Heat of Reaction
The main objective of this experiment was to calculate the enthalpy of the reaction for the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide as well as measure the heat capacity in regard to the neutralization of a strong base and strong acid. Additionally, data was graphed in order to find the change in time relating to temperature vs. time. A calorimeter was made so that the temperatures of these reactions could be monitored and recorded, as well as allow us to complete calculations. Overall the results proved to be decent as there was a percent error for enthalpy of only 7.63%, and it was found that our calculations were accurate.
