John TansyChristine SkaggsC125 2162821 March 2017Cold packs have a very practical use in everyday life, if an individual gets injured in some way,often times their go to is some type of cold pack to use in order to rehab the injury. Conversely, but notincluded in this report, heat packs can be used for warmth in times of cold. The point of this report is toexemplify how to create a cold pack with the given materials, NaOH and H2O.When mixing NaOH and H2O, the process is very exothermic. This means that the reactionreleases heat, or gets colder. This would be quite effective in creating an item such as a cold pack to treatinjury. Some type of enclosed container or material to hold the compounds separate is ideal, and when thedesired time for the cold pack comes, the materials would be combined and then the desired temperatureachieved. Proper amounts of materials would have to be used in order to achieve the desired temperature,
