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 6”test 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. Only the rubber stopper with the inserted thermometer would be visible on the surface of the  Styrofoam cube. This is your improvised calorimeter.
