Simple Calorimetry to Find the Enthalpy of Combustion of Alcohols

Accomplished chemistry learners set up a calorimeter and measure the energy released by various alcohols: methanol, ethanol, and either propanol or butanol. Lab masters will first need to design their own tables for recording data. Consider having them write up a full lab report to turn in. This is an excellent exercise for when your class is learning about alcohols or enthalpy.
