  1. IB IA: Determination of Heat of Neutralization

    57 HNO3(aq) + 1/2 Ba(OH)2(aq) � 1/2 Ba(NO3)2(aq) + H2O(l) 57 3. From the above table, we can conclude that standard enthalpy change of neutralization for reactions between strong acids and strong bases is theoretically 57kJmol-1. 4. However, all the 5 experiments have shown a significant deviation in terms of the value for the standard enthalpy change for neutralization.

  2. The Enthalpy of Neutralization

    Moles of water: [Equal to moles of limiting reagent] 0.050mol H2O Calculating Enthalpy of Neutralization Mass/volume of solution [Mass = Volume, if we assume 1g = 1cm3] 25.00cm3 (� 0.5cm3) + 25.00cm3 (� 0.5cm3) = 50.00cm3 (� 1.0cm3) = 50.00g (� 1.0g)

    The calorimeter is weighed (again, the calorimeter must be weighed after any new substance is added), and 70 mL of distilled water are added (after it's temperature is taken). The cylinder is placed in a beaker filled with enough water to cover it, placed on a heating plate until the

  2. Experimental Molar Enthalpy of Neutralization for Sodium Hydroxide Solution

    By increasing the pressure, the reaction rate is increased and more reactions take place. As a result of a larger quantity of reactions occurring at 101.9kPa than at the standard SATP conditions, there will be a greater change in enthalpy at 101.9kPa.

  1. Analysis of the Standard Enthalpy of Combustion for Alcohols

    Worked example from Trial 1, Methanol: mass change=mass initial-mass final mass change=203.98 g±0.01g-(202.95g±0.01g) =1.03 g ±0.02 g The uncertainty of the mass change has been calculated by adding the uncertainties of the initial mass and the final mass, (0.01 g + 0.01 g = ± 0.02 g)

  2. The aim of this experiment is to examine the enthalpy of combustion of the ...

    Pentan-1-ol has the greatest number of carbon atoms in the chain and also the highest enthalpy change of combustion. Therefore as the number of carbon atoms increases the enthalpy change also increases. This is because as the number of carbon atoms in a chain increases the number of bonds which can be broken also increases.

    As a result the first part of the hypothesis which has built at the beginning of the investigation proved as wrong and the opposite claim resulted. The opposite claim was: an increase in the number of frying will increase the free fatty acids in the sunflower oil.
