CHEM1001 - Resources for Week 8

Topics and Learning Outcomes

  • Thermochemistry
    •  explain the difference between heat and temperature
    •  appreciate that heat is mostly associated with changes kinetic energy and chemical reactions are mostly associated with changes in potential energy
  • First Law of Thermodynamics
    •  explain the difference between heat and temperature
    •  identify a process as endothermic or exothermic from the temperature change
    •  relate temperature and heat change using specific and molar heat capacities
    •  calculate internal energy changes using the bomb calorimeter
    •  define the difference between internal energy and enthalpy
    •  obtain the enthalpy change using a coffee-cup calorimeter
    •  use Hess's Law
    •  estimate reaction enthalpies from bond energies
    •  define standard states
    •  combine enthalpies of formation to work out the enthalpy change for chemical reactions
    •  combine enthalpies of reactions to work out the enthalpies of formation
    •  explain the advantages and disadvantages of solid, petroleum, hypergolic and cryogenic (hydrogen) fuels
