  • Polymers, Combustion, Heat, Exothermic & Endothermic, Heat of Combustion, Molecular Structure | High School

    Activity: The Internal Combustion Engine Video Questions

    In this activity, students will watch a video and answer related questions about the mechanical and chemical processed used in the internal combustion engine. Additionally they will learn about reactions and fuel types as well as the history and evolution of the combustion engine.

  • Combustion, Heat, Exothermic & Endothermic, Heat of Combustion | High School, Middle School, Elementary School

    Video: The Internal Combustion Engine Video

    This video investigates both the mechanical and the chemical processes used in the internal combustion engine, as well as the history and evolution of the combustion engine.

  • Combustion, Accuracy, Dimensional Analysis, Measurements, Calorimetry, Heat, Specific Heat, Temperature, Exothermic & Endothermic, Heat of Combustion, Law of Conservation of Energy, Bond Energy, Error Analysis | High School

    Lab: How Much Energy is in Your Snack Food?

    In this lab, students will find the amount of heat energy stored in foods and compare heat calories with food calories.

  • Interdisciplinary, Culminating Project, Balancing Equations, Combustion, Stoichiometry, Dimensional Analysis, Heat of Combustion | High School

    Lesson Plan: Redesigning a Car for the Environment

    Chemland’s city public transportation board has requested the class to help them determine the direction the city should move towards in reducing the carbon footprint. Students will be divided into groups and will come up with proposals of how to reduce the carbon footprint from carbon dioxide released from vehicles. The groups will represent different ways to reduce the carbon footprint via an alternative fuel source or a new technology. They will debate their findings to determine the direction that the city council should move towards to reduce the carbon footprint.

  • Combustion, Calorimetry, Heat, Specific Heat, Temperature, Heat of Combustion, Scientific Method, Enthalpy, Bond Energy, Accuracy, Graphing, Experimental Design, Error Analysis | High School

    Activity: Evaluating Fuels

    In this activity, students measure the heats of combustion of four fuels and compare them as potential replacements for gasoline.

  • Specific Heat, Temperature, Heat of Combustion | High School

    Demonstration: Measuring Heat

    In this demonstration students will observe what happens to the temperature of water when different volumes of hot water are added and also when copper, the same temperature as the hot water is added.
