Unformatted text preview: However, that will not be the case because the calorimeter will absorb a small amount of heat during transfer. In part B of this experiment two reactions are completed in the calibrated calorimeter to see the heat that is given off by the reactions. The first reaction was Mg + 2HCl MgCl 2 + H 2 and the other reaction was MgO + 2HCl MgCl 2 + H 2 O. Both reactions released heat and the enthalpy of the reaction can be calculated.
