Classroom Resources: Energy & Thermodynamics
1 – 10 of 10 Classroom Resources
Entropy, Exothermic & Endothermic, Gibb's Free Energy , Enthalpy, Spontaneous vs. Non-spontaneous Reactions | High School
In this lab, students will be able to observe and measure energy changes during the formation of solutions. The students should be able to explain and describe these changes in terms of entropy, enthalpy and free energy.
Calorimetry, Heat, Entropy, Specific Heat, Temperature, Exothermic & Endothermic, Hess's Law, Gibb's Free Energy , Enthalpy, Energy Diagrams | High School
The AACT high school classroom resource library and multimedia collection has everything you need to put together a unit plan for your classroom: lessons, activities, labs, projects, videos, simulations, and animations. We constructed a unit plan using AACT resources that is designed to teach thermochemistry and thermodynamics to your students.
Catalysts, Entropy, Equilibrium Constants, Enthalpy, Activation Energy, Energy Diagrams, Reaction Quotient, Spontaneous vs. Non-spontaneous Reactions | High School
In this lesson students will understand the connections between the equilibrium constant (K) and the reaction quotient (Q) as well as how they determine the favorability of a reaction. Additionally students will be able to determine if a reaction is kinetically favored or thermodynamically favored.
Entropy, Gibb's Free Energy , Enthalpy | High School
In this activity students observe various chemical and physical processes to qualitatively predict and explain the signs of ∆S and ∆H. Based on their observations, they will predict the sign of ∆G and will determine the driving force of the process. Students will then calculate ∆S, ∆H and ∆G. This lesson focuses on thermochemical predictions, calculations and explanations.
Concentration, Molarity, Stoichiometry, Limiting Reactant, Chemical Change, Calorimetry, Heat, Temperature, Exothermic & Endothermic, Scientific Method, Enthalpy, Experimental Design | High School
In this lab, students will investigate the endothermic reaction between baking soda and HCl. Students will consider stoichiometric ratios, molar concentrations, reaction scale, and calorimetry. The lab starts with a scripted reaction that uses given molar ratios, a glass beaker, and 2-M HCl. They will witness a temperature drop of about 5 to 8 C. Students then adjust the experiment so they can achieve a temperature drop of more than 20 C.
Gas Laws, Catalysts, Combustion, Stoichiometry, Limiting Reactant, Enthalpy, Activation Energy, Energy Diagrams, Experimental Design | High School
In this lab, students create a stoichiometric mixture of hydrogen and oxygen gases to launch a soda bottle rocket.
Exothermic & Endothermic, Hess's Law, Enthalpy | High School
In this lesson, students learn about the concepts of Hess's Law and how to solve problems involving them.
Combustion, Calorimetry, Heat, Specific Heat, Temperature, Heat of Combustion, Scientific Method, Enthalpy, Bond Energy, Accuracy, Graphing, Experimental Design, Error Analysis | High School
In this activity, students measure the heats of combustion of four fuels and compare them as potential replacements for gasoline.
Observations, Inferences, Calorimetry, Heat, Specific Heat, Temperature, Exothermic & Endothermic, Enthalpy | Middle School, High School
In this demonstration, students will observe temperature changes in chemical hot and cold packs and discuss processes of endothermic and exothermic changes. They will also see that common household products can be used to make a hot and cold pack.
Renewable Energy, Chemical Change, Interdisciplinary, Distillation, Molecular Structure, Combustion, Stoichiometry, Chemical Change, Molecular Structure , Enthalpy | High School
In this lesson students will explore the world of automobile alternative energy sources through the study of biofuels. They will design and create an e-book that illustrates and explains one of the provided topics or an original idea approved by the teacher.
