Chemistry 100 Experiment #5: Energy Comparison of Fuels Name: Date: Purpose: To learn about how fuels differ. To learn about the origin of fossil fuels. To learn how energy is measured in calories or joules. To evaluate and compare the energy content of two fuels. Introduction: Two types of fuel sources will be compared in this lab in order to see which gives off the most heat per gram burned. You will do this by measuring the temperature difference of the water being heated. From there, you will calculate the amount of energy transferred to the water during the heating process. The results will be analyzed to determine the most efficient fuel tested. Data: part 1 Mass of water (g) Volume of water (mL) Part 2: Fuel Initial mass of fuel (g) Final mass of fuel (g) Initial temp of water ( o C) Final temp of water ( o C) Fuel Canister (diethylene glycol) Tea Candle (Paraffin Wax)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
