Thermochemistry notes

Thermochemistry The branch of chemistry pertaining to TEMPERATURE CHANGES and HEAT TRANSFER of both physical processes and chemical reactions.
Heat (Delta H) A measure of both the speed & quantity of particles (total energy) measured in Joules (J) heat is transferred from a warmer object to a cooler object
Heating + Cooling curves The nature of water. Water has the chemical formula H2O and has a bent molecular structure, resulting in the molecule being POLAR.
Why are water molecules attracted to one another? Due to polarity (Hydrogen bonds)
Water heating curve (s) -100 - 0
Water heating curve (s-> 1) melting 0-0
Water heating curve (1) 0->100
Water heating curve (1->g) boiling 100-100
Water heating curve (g) 100->200+
Water cooling curve (g) 200-100
Water cooling curve (g->1) condensing 100->100
Water cooling curve (1) 100->0
Water cooling curve (1->s) freezing 0->0
Water cooling curve (s) 0-> -100
Melting & Freezing Delt.H - HfusM
Boiling and Condensing Delt.H = HvapM
Heating & Cooling Delt.H=mcDelt.T
Delta H Heat (J)
Hfus Heat of fusion (J/G)
Hvap Heat of vaporization (J/g)
M Mass (g)
C Specific heat capacity (J/g C)
Delta T Temperature change (Final tmp - initial temp)
Endothermic reaction Delt.H is written as a reactant ; positive
Exothermic reaction Delt. H is written as a product ; negative
Heat of reaction The amount of energy released or absorbed by a chemical reaction
Enthalpy at constant, pressure the heat of reaction
delta H The total energy of bonds broken - total energy of bonds formed
heat of formation heat released or absorbed when one mole of a compound is formed by a combo of its elements
heat of a reaction is also.. the total of heats of formation of products minus the heats of the formation of the reactants
steps need to be reversed sometimes... can be multiplied by a constant or a step can be reversed
if step multiplied by a # DELTA H is also multiplied by that number
if step is reversed the sign of delta h is also reversed

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
