Classroom Resources: Energy & Thermodynamics
1 – 5 of 5 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.
Electrolysis, Redox Reaction, Galvanic Cells, Gibb's Free Energy , Electrolytic Cells | High School
In this lesson, students will build several electrolytic cells, discuss and diagram their cells to further their understanding of electrolysis, and use qualitative and quantitative analysis of the electrolysis of potassium iodide. Finally, students will practice and be assessed on their knowledge of electrolysis on AP exam-level questioning.
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.
Reduction, Redox Reaction, Reduction Potentials, Galvanic Cells, Dimensional Analysis, Exothermic & Endothermic, Oxidation, Half Reactions, Cathode, Anode, Gibb's Free Energy , Spontaneous Reactions , Electron Transfer, Electrons, Spontaneous vs. Non-spontaneous Reactions, Spontaneous Reactions | High School
In this lesson students compare energy densities of lead acid and lithium ion batteries to understand the relationship between electrochemical cell potentials and utilization of stored chemical energy.
