Date Performed: Experiment 8 Calorimetry I. Objectives: > to determine the heat capacity of the calorimeter. > to determine the enthalpy of reaction of nitric acid and sodium hydroxide. II. Diagrams/Figures for Special Set-ups: III Outline/Schematic Diagram of Procedure.: >Materials: Styrofoam cube or ball Thermometer 6 test tube 50 mL graduated cylinder Rubber stopper 1.00 M HCl 1.00 M NaOH 1.00 M HNO 3 >Procedure: Carve out a hole at a portion of the Styrofoam cube so that a 20 mL test tube could fit in completely and snugly. As shown on fig15, insert a 6test tube into this carved hole. Insert a thermometer into the rubber stopper such that the bulb of the thermometer would be positioned half way inside the test tube.
