Experiment 10- Thermochemistry (Discussion) In part one of the experiment, we chilled 60 mL of DI water in about 10 degrees Celsius and then added 50 mL of chilled water to the calorimeter and stirred the cup with a magnetic stirrer and measured the temperature change every 30 seconds and found that the temperature had the most dramatic increase in the first 30 seconds by 2.7 degrees and from there after, the temperature stayed stable for the rest of the way. Then we added the hot water and found the temperature started at 37.1 degrees and increased suddenly by 7 degrees and then stabilized to about 43.1 thereafter. The jump happened because the hot water was added to the cold water. The max temperature was found on the graph was 44.4 degrees Celsius, and heat capacity of the calorimeter was found to be 21.4 degrees Celsius by virtue of using the qc=-qh equation. In part two of the experiment, a test tube was released into a 600 mL beaker and was brought to a boil.

    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.
