Prior to Class Please read the following section of Lab Safety and Practices: Preparing Graphs. Lab Procedure Please print the worksheet for this lab. You will need this sheet to record your data. Part A: Heat of Solution - CaCl2 and NH4NO3 1 Use a spoon- type spatula to dispense anhydrous solid CaCl2 into a dry 30 mL beaker. One spoonful, not he aping, is plenty. 2 Obtain 10 mL of deionized water in a graduated cylinder. 3 Measure the initial temperature of the water and record it in Table A. 4 Pour the water into the beaker containing the CaCl2. 5 Place the thermometer in the beaker. Watch the temperature change on the thermometer. Record the maximum or minimum temperature reached in Table A. 6 When finished, dispose of your solution as directed by your instructor, rinse the beaker...
