Budding chemists achieve a basic understanding of the role of heat in chemical reactions. An online worksheet gives learners instructions and questions to answer as they investigate the Chem4Kids website and perform a hands-on lab inquiry. Using calcium chloride and ammonium nitrate, both in water, they record the temperature every five minutes over a 30-minute span. You will appreciate the support you receive from this hot item!
This two-page assignment covers basic thermochemistry concepts. Chemistry learners identify exothermic and endothermic processes, explain a phase change graph, and draw an energy level diagram. There are no problems to solve, just conceptual questions and critical thinking applications. It makes a nice change of pace as chemistry homework.
For this thermochemistry worksheet, students indicate whether the given processes are endothermic or exothermic reactions. Students complete the phase change diagram as well as define a given set of vocabulary words. Students calculate mass and specific heat of several word problems.
In this thermochemistry worksheet, students answer questions about energy and heat, endothermic and exothermic reactions and the law of conservation of energy. They calculate the enthalpy of reactions and they determine using specific heats of solutions the amount of heat released in reactions.
In this thermochemistry worksheet, students solve a variety of problems including finding heats or reactions, determining specific heats of substances, finding the amount of energy released in a calorimeter determining the final temperatures of solutions given the specific heat and changes in conditions.
These questions require definitions of calories, temperature and heat and examples of kinetic and potential energy. There are enthalpy change calculations and some sample reactions are given which need equations. Pupils should be able to complete the last 2 detailed explanations.
In this energy from hydrocarbons worksheet, students read about endothermic and exothermic reactions and how hydrocarbons release heat as fuels. Students read how to measure heat changes in reactions and practice finding the specific heat of a substance, the energy needed to heat a substance to a certain temperature and the heat of a reaction.
What is the difference between heat and temperature? By examining the properties of wood, metal, and plastic, high school chemists explore the concept of heat vs. temperature. Ensure that your high schoolers are following the procedure carefully and thinking deeply about the important questions with an extensive worksheet that walks learners through the lab and concluding questions.
This is actually a 10-day mini unit on thermal energy for your high school chemists. Every avenue is taken to get learners absorbed in heat: a pretest, a PowerPoint presentation, Internet exploration, demonstrations, lab activities, and all of the printable materials. There are some things that you may not be able to use, such as specific textbook references, but there is much to glean and use for your own chemistry curriculum!
