2. Introduction: 2.1. Heat transfer: Heat transfer is the science that pursues to foresee the energy transfer that may take place among material bodies as an outcome of a temperature difference. Thermodynamics explains that this energy transfer is described as heat. The science of heat transfer pursues not only to explain how heat energy may be transfer, but also to foresee the rate at which the exchange will take place under certain quantified conditions.
Thermal Boundary Layer The Thermal Boundary Layer describes the interaction and exchange of thermal energy between a surface and flowing fluid. When a fluid at a specific temperature flows across an adjacent surface of different temperature, the interactions between the two surfaces will result in the formation of a boundary layer. At this point the particles of the fluid will assume the temperature of the surface and reach thermal equilibrium. This thermal energy will then travel through the remainder of the fluid where it will result in a temperature profile within the flow field ranging from the surface temperature (T_w ) to the ambient temperature (T_∞ ), (Cengel, Cimbala, & Turner, 2012), this is shown in figure XX below.
The change in enthalpy is synonymous with the change in heat. If the change in enthalpy is positive, it is an endothermic reaction. A negative answers means it is an exothermic reaction. Equation two is the equation for the enthalpy of a reaction. (Equation 2) Hrxn= Hproducts - Hreactants Calorimetry is used to measure enthalpy.
A neutralisation is either exothermic or endothermic. Exothermic reactions are the reactions that give out energy and therefore the temperature rises as a result of this. Endothermic reactions are the ones that take in energy from the surrounding and cause the temperature to decrease as a result of this. Making and breaking bonds either require energy or give out energy. When breaking bonds it requires energy, which means it's a endothermic reaction because the heat in the surrounding is absorbed to break the chemical bond.
(http://encarta.msn.com). The heat capacity C of an object is defined as c= Q/m?T, where Q is the amount of heat required to change the temperature of the object by T. The specific heat c of a substance is the heat capacity per unit mass. The specific heat is measured in J/kgoC or cal/goC or kcal/kgoC. Suppose we have two objects, one hot and one cold. Let m1 and m2 be the masses of the hot and cold objects,T1 and T2 be the temperatures of the hot and cold objects, and c1 and c2 be their specific heats respectively.
The measurement of change in heat is called calorimetry. The change in heat energy is known as the enthalpy change , and it is the quantity of heat released or absorbed during a reaction when 1.00 mol of a substance undergoes a chemical reaction while under constant pressure. The molar enthalpy of Combustion is the quantity
Introduction Generally, two important questions may be asked about a chemical reaction: (1)How far do the reactants interact to yield products, and (2) how fast is the reaction? “How far?” is a question of chemical equilibrium which is the realm of chemical thermodynamics. “How fast?” is the realm of chemical kinetics, the subject of this experiment. In this experiment we will study the rate of oxidation of iodide ion by hydrogen peroxide which proceeds according to the following reaction: H2O2 (aq) + 2 I-(aq) + 2H+(aq) I2(aq) + 2H2O(l) By varying the concentrations of each of the three reactants (H2O2, I- and H+), we will be able to determine the order of the reaction with respect to each reactant and the rate law of the reaction, which is of the form: Rate = k [H2O2]x[I-]y[H+]z By knowing the reaction times (†t) and the concentrations of H2O2 of two separate reaction mixtures (mixtures A & B), the reaction order of H2O2, x, can be calculated. x = log(†t2/ †t1) / log ( [H2O2]1/[H2O2]2 ) The same method is used to obtain the reaction order with respect to I- (mixtures A & C) and H+ (mixtures A & D).
This is extremely helpful because some reactions are very difficult to find the heat of reactions for directly. This experiment will find the heat of reaction for two chemical reactions and require Hess’s Law to determine the heat of reaction for the final desired product. Calorimetry is the science that determines the changes in energy of a system by measuring the heat exchanged with the surroundings. It often requires the use of a calorimeter which is an instrument for measuring the amount of heat involved in a chemical reaction. In this experiment, the first two reactions are exothermic so the temperature of the solution and container will rise and some heat will be lost to the surroundings.
Introduction This experiment investigates how changing a factor that affects the equilibrium reaction, in this case temperature, affects the equilibrium position. Fe 3+ (aq) + S︎CN – (aq) ⇌ Fe ( SCN ) 2+ (aq) ( ∆H = - ve ) Pale Yellow Colorless Blood Red This experiment uses Iron (III) ion and thiocyanate ion; the two chemicals are yellow colored and colorless, respectively. The product of the forward reaction is Iron (III) Thiocyanatoiron, which has a blood red color. Dynamic equilibrium is when the macroscopic properties of the reaction are in constant at a specific temperature when the rate of the forward reaction is equal to that of the reverse reaction in a closed system. (Derry, Connor & Jordan, 2009) Le Chatelier's Principle states that the change in temperature, pressure, or concentration will cause a shift in the reversible.
Differential Scanning Calorimetry(DSC) The thermoanalytical technique which gives the difference in the amount of heat required to increase the temperature of the sample and the reference is called Differential scanning calorimetry. The difference in amount of heat is measured as function of temperature. Throughout the testing, both the reference and the sample are maintained in same temperature. The sample holder temperature is increased linearly as a function of time. The reference sample should have a well-defined heat capacity over the range of temperatures to be scanned.
