Chapter 6 Thermochemistry Thermochemistry is a branch of thermodynamics and is the study of heat changes in chemical reactions.

6.2 The Nature of Energy: Key Definitions (p. 215)

Energy (E) can be defined as the capacity to do work. Two fundamental classifications of energy are:

1. Kinetic energy (E k ) =

2. Potential energy (E p ) =

The SI unit of energy is a derived unit called the joule (J).

1 J = 1 kg·m 2 /s 2

1 calorie (cal) =

1 food calorie (Cal) =

 6.3 The First Law of Thermodynamics (p. 216) The total energy of the is Internal energy (E) is the of the and energies of a

The universe is understood to be divided into two separate but integral parts, the

and the

The system is the substance or mixture of substances under study in which a change occurs or simply stated, it is the part of the universe under investigation. The surroundings compose the other part of the universe. In other words, the surroundings include both the apparatus which contains the substance under study, and the space around the apparatus. Separating the system from the surroundings is the boundary, which can be real (like the walls of a beaker) or imaginary.

E system = E final - E initial

E system = E products - E reactants

Stated mathematically in terms of internal energy (E), heat (q), and work (w), the law of conservation of energy is referred to as the first law of thermodynamics and is expressed as:

ΔE system =

 All thermodynamic quantities have a and a Heat (q) “flows” spontaneously from the object to the object.

6.4 Quantifying Heat and Work: Specific Heat Capacity and Specific Heat (p. 221)

Heat spontaneously flows from higher temperature to lower temperature. Calorimetery is the science of measuring the heat change associated with either a physical or

chemical process.

object is heated, its temperature increases and when the object cools, its temperature decreases.

When a system absorbs heat its temperature changes, provided that no physical change takes place (phase change) and no reaction occurs. When an

Heat capacity (C) is the amount of heat (q) required to raise the temperature of an object (system) one degree Celsius. The heat change of a system is described by the mathematical relationship:

q =

The units for heat capacity are J/ o C.

The change in temperature (ΔT) of the object is defined as: ΔT = T final - T initial

Heat Capacity Problem #1 How much heat is required to raise the temperature of an object from 25.00 o C to 60.00 o C, if the heat capacity of the object is 0.755 J/ o C?

Heat Capacity Problem #2 An object with a heat capacity of 38.25 J/ o C lost 4.593 kJ of heat. If the initial temperature was 235.19 o C, calculate the final temperature after the cooling process.

The specific heat capacity, C s , (or specific heat) is the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one gram of a substance one degree Celsius or Kelvin.

Specific heat is an intensive property but varies with temperature.

The mathematical equation relating specific heat and temperature change is:

q =

6.5 Measuring E for Chemical Reactions: Constant-Volume Calorimetery (p. 227)

The heat associated with a reaction carried out at constant volume conditions (q v ) is equivalent to ΔE rxn .

E rxn = q v = q rxn

A bomb calorimeter (combustion calorimeter) is a device used to measure ΔE rxn for a combustion reaction.

combustion chamber (the bomb) wherein the reaction takes place, set in another chamber filled with water surrounding the bomb. Heat generated by combustion is

transmitted to the bomb and then to the water, raising temperature of both. = (C cal )(T)

Combustion calorimeters are usually composed of a

The heat transmitted to the calorimeter can be calculated from the following equation: q cal

The heat absorbed by the calorimeter is equal in magnitude but opposite in sign to the heat generated by the reaction.
