Unformatted text preview: Henry Nguyen Hhn247 52670 Leigh Krueger Experiment #7 Bomb Calorimetry Introduction The purpose of this experiment is to use a bomb calorimeter to find the standard enthalpy of formation for various compounds. The sample, in this case anthracene, is loaded into the bomb calorimeter and was detonated in a water bucket. The rise in temperature within the bomb calorimeter indicates a combustion reaction occurred. From this change in temperature, the enthalpy of combustion can be measured, which can be used to figure out the enthalpy of formation by applying Hess Law. 1 Data and Observations Bomb specific precautions were followed. According to PChemLab Wiki: 2 o Steps 2-3 were skipped because these steps apply to an older version of the Bomb Calorimeter program. o Steps 4-6 were skipped thermocouple calibration was provided. o About 0.500 0.600 0.001 g of sample is needed for each sample pellet. Three runs were conducted for benzoic acid and anthracene each.
