More than a week's worth of investigation is provided in this source. Physical science stars experiment to describe specific heat, conduction, convection, and radiation. They also discover the relationship between mechanical and thermal energy. These activities are all illuminating. You do not need to use all 12 to thoroughly introduce learners to thermodynamics concepts, but each of them is sure to ignite understanding!
This is a review of how advanced chemistry learners handle thermodynamics equations and calculations. Charts and graphs are included for them to read in addition to solving related problems. You will find this resource useful as a review homework or preparation for a unit quiz.
In this thermodynamics worksheet, students answer eight multiple choice questions about the laws of thermodynamics. They calculate changes in systems such as internal energy and entropy.
Students watch videos about various modes of transportation, they examine the energy transformations that occur in each, and they be introduced to the laws of thermodynamics.
For this thermodynamics worksheet, students answer eight multiple choice questions about topics such as heat of reactions, enthalpy, entropy and combustion.
A brief chemistry worksheet provides two different example problems. When learners complete the worksheet, they practice calculating the specific heat of a metal and the enthalpy for a reaction. Teach your advanced chemists how to work with thermodynamic concepts with these example problems.
Review thermodynamics with your advanced chemistry class. When you assign this worksheet, learners apply their knowledge to a reaction between cyclopropane and oxygen gas. This is a well-organized and comprehensive exercise.
When first learning thermodynamics theory, your advanced chemistry learners could use these practice problems. They calculate enthalpy and entropy changes for different reactions and describe signs of change in different situations. This worksheet employs different strategies for assessing student understanding. Use it as a quiz.
This is the first of several worksheets of this type on thermodynamics. Learners solve for specific heat, determine if reactions are endothermic or exothermic, write balanced equations, and determine enthalpy for different reactions. This resource is geared toward AP chemistry learners. 
For this thermodynamics worksheet, students calculate the change of entropy and standard free energy change for given reactions. Students write expressions for the thermodynamic equilibrium constants for reactions. This worksheet has 10 problems to solve.
In this science worksheet, students are using the laws of thermodynamics and a basic knowledge to fill in the sentences with the correct words.
In this thermodynamics worksheet, students describe the reactions given and then determine the thermodynamic calculations. This worksheet has 14 problems to solve.
In this thermodynamics worksheet, students determine what happens to an ideal gas at it goes through an isothermal process, isovolumeric process, and isobaric change. This worksheet has 5 problems to solve.
For this thermodynamic processes worksheet, students apply the first law of thermodynamics as it relates to ideal gases. Students use this information to solve 5 problems.
In this thermodynamics activity, students fill in the blanks with terms related to specific heat, calorimetry, phase changes, enthalpy, entropy and free energy.
In this thermodynamics learning exercise, students apply Hess's Law and review internal energy theory and heat capacity theory. Students use Boltzmann formula to calculate entropy and calculate the change in free energy. This learning exercise has 12 problems to solve.
In this thermodynamics learning exercise, students review enthalpy, state functions, bond energy, and heat capacity. This learning exercise has 2 multiple choice, 6 matching, and 12 problems to solve.
Sal provides two definitions for entropy: the thermodynamic definition and the mathematical definition. Entropy and the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics are the focuses of this chemistry video. The law states that the change in entropy in the universe, when any process is undergone, is always greater than, or equal to, zero. Sal goes on to illustrate this point by setting up examples which are clear and easy to understand.
In the previous video, Sal introduced students to entropy and the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics. An example he used had a couple of points that were factual, but not clear to many students. In this video, he goes over those points again in an attempt to make them clearer.
This worksheet would make a nifty quiz on the laws of thermodynamics. Nine multiple choice questions assess high schoolers' understanding of energy transfer, specific heat capacity, phase change, fusion, and vaporization. It is short but saavy.
