Transcript of Experiment 1: A3 Bomb Calorimetry

Experiment A3 Introduction Using Bomb Calorimetry to Calculate the Resonance Energy of Benzene Theory: Bomb Calorimetry Bomb Calorimeter. Digital image. Calorimetry. University of Florida, n.d. Web. 20 Jan. 2013. <http://www.chem.ufl.edu/~itl/4411/lectures/lec_9.html>. Theory: Calibration Calibration is necessary to obtain absolute heat flow values

Used benzoic acid to calibrate chemically

Knowing the heat of combustion of benzoic acid allows the calorimeter constant to be calculated Experimental Bomb Calorimetry Results Calculations Summary & Conclusion Experimenter: Naomi Elman Theory

Determined Q of CDDT Combustion triggered externally by a voltage source

Fuse wire is touching sample to ensure complete combustion

Combustion occurs because of hot wire and pressure from oxygenated atmosphere Theory: Examining Benzene 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 Discussion Related Research
