Here are experiments our science specialists have selected to support the IB* topic.
Experiment #13 from Advanced Chemistry with Vernier
In this experiment, you will
- Use Hess’s law to determine the enthalpy change of the reaction between aqueous ammonia and aqueous hydrochloric acid.
- Compare your calculated enthalpy change with the experimental results.
Experiment #12 from Vernier Chemistry Investigations for Use with AP* Chemistry
In the Initial Investigation, you will use a Temperature Probe to determine the temperature change of two substances as they dissolve in water. After completing the Initial Investigation, you will test several substances to determine which substance is the best hand warmer based on two factors: enthalpy of solution and cost.
Experiment #3 from Investigating Chemistry through Inquiry
In the Preliminary Activity, you will gain experience using a Temperature Probe as you determine the temperature change as a sample of urea dissolves in water.
After completing the Preliminary Activity, you will first use reference sources to find out more about cold packs, urea, and heat before you choose and investigate a researchable question dealing with urea or urea-containing cold packs.
