Determine the average initial temperature for each trial by averaging the initial temperature of the NCI and the NaOH solution before mixing. Record as Average Ti before mixing in Data Table 1. Substance Trial 1 (Ti) Trial 2 (Ti) Average (T’) HCI NaOH 20X 20 = 20 2. Calculate the change in temperature T by substracting the average initial temperature from the final temperature of the mixture (T = Tf -Ti) Record in Data Table 1. Substance Tf HC’ & NaOH rntx 26-20=6 3. Did the temperature rise or fall as the 2 solutions were mixed?

Explain this in term of heat transfer. -The temperature rose as the 2 solutions were mixed because they neutralized. 4. Calculate the heat of neutralization (q in Joules) for the reaction using equation (q =m X T X s). Assume that the density and specific heat of the solution are the same as that of pure water (density of water = 1. 0 g/ml). Record in data table 1. Calculate the average heat (q) by averaging trials 1 and 2. Record in data table 1. Q=? S ????”4. 184 J/g *Both Trials had the same results 5. Classify the reaction as either exothermic or endothermic. Give evidence for your answer. The reaction is exothermic because the temperature rose. Reaction 2 – NH4 N03 and H20 1. Calculate the change in temperature (T) for each trial. Record in Data Table 2. Trial -3 -20= -23 -2- 20 -22 this in terms of heat transfer. -The temperature of the water fell because the NH4N03 absorbed the heat of the water. 3. Calculate the heat (q in Joules ) for the reaction. Record q for each trial in data table 2. Trial 1 M=25g S=4. 184J/g -3 – 20 ????”23 -r=2 -20=-22 T????”22. 5 -2405. 8] -2301. 2J -2353. 5 4. Calculate the heat absorbed or released per gram of solute added to the water (in oules/g) record in data table 2.
