Energy Conversions in Chemistry

Although the use of different energy forms can be found everywhere, the exact description of the energy conversion processes involved is often perceived as very abstract and difficult. In this course, students conduct experiments in which they become familiar with the conditions, measurements and calculations used to first illustrate and then calculate energy conversions in chemistry.

Experiments:
Spontaneous exothermic and endothermic reactions
Determination of the heat capacity of water
Quantitative description of a reaction by thermometric titration
Determination of the calorific value of everyday chemicals (biodiesel, potato chips)
Temperature dependence of the energy portion which is not freely convertible (TΔS)

Optional: Students can record their experiments with a thermal imaging camera. 

From grade: 11
Maximal Number of Participants: 16
Duration: 1 Day (9:00-17:00)
