Chemistry Lab Report 2 Purpose The objectives of this particular lab are to determine the specific heat of a metal, the enthalpy of neutralization for a strong acid-strong base reaction, & the enthalpy of solution for the dissolution of a salt. Background information The transfer of heat occurs in all physical or chemical changes. During a chemical reaction, heat is either absorbed or evolved. The chemical reaction where heat is absorbed is referred as an endothermic reaction while a chemical reaction where heat is evolved is referred as an exothermic reaction. The heat change that occurs during a chemical reaction is quantitatively illustrated as the enthalpy ( H). The sign for the enthalpy is positive for an endothermic reaction & negative for an exothermic reaction. List of materials A boiling water bath A 400-ml beaker Weighing paper Mass balance Calorimeter Thermometer Stirrer Graduated cylinder A 200-ml test tube Styrofoam Coffee Cups Unknown metal Water Bunsen burner or hotplate 110 mL of 1.1 M HCl 110 mL of 1.1 M HNO 3 210 mL of standardized M NaOH Salt Procedure

    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.
