Roshni Sheth CH 116-M3 Partners: Kaity Brown, Chris Suda October 7, 2009 Heat of Reaction 1. Introduction In this experiment, the purpose is to determine the heat of reaction, or q value, by using a calorimeter. A calorimeter provides constant pressure, so the heat of reaction per mole of water produced will equal the enthalpy for the experiment. First, to find the q value, mix the acid and base solutions, where the base is limiting. Then, mix the acid and base solutions again, where the acid is limiting, and use the previously found enthalpy to determine the q value. This will lead to finding the concentration of the acid. 2. The Experimental Section To begin the first of two parts of the experiment, measure 10mL of NaOH solution, and put it into a coffee cup calorimeter. Place the lid on the calorimeter, stir the solution for 30 seconds, and take and record a temperature reading. Then, add 25mL of acetic acid solution to the coffee cup, and stir the solution for one minute. Take another temperature reading and record it. Discard the solution from the coffee cup. Repeat this procedure two

### What students are saying

• 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.
