Sulfuric Acid into Water and Ice  
When sulfuric acid is mixed with water the temperature rises. When sulfuric acid is added to ice, the temperature rises at first, but as the ice melts, the temperature falls.

Endothermic Reaction  
Solid barium hydroxide octahydrate (Ba(OH)2*8H2O) and ammonium thiocyanate (NH4SCN) are mixed in a beaker, which is then placed on a few drops of water on a small board. The reaction that occurs is highly endothermic.

Thermochemistry : BombCalorimeter (4 Variations)
Stearic acid (CH3(CH2)16CO2H) is a fatty acid, the part of fat that stores most of the energy. 1.00 g of stearic acid was burned in a bomb calorimeter. The bomb had a heat capacity of 652 J/oC and a 500. g water reservoir. If the temperature rose from 25.0 to 39.3 oC, how much heat was released when the stearic acid was burned?

Thermochemistry : CoffeeCupCalorimeter (2 Variations)
A block of copper is heated to {x} °C and then is dropped into a coffee cup calorimeter containing {y} g of water at 25.0 °C. The final temperature of the system is 45.1 °C. What is the mass of the copper block to the nearest gram? (Assume all heat is transferred to the water). Write your answer in the box, and do NOT include units.

Specific heat capacity of copper = 0.383 J/(g*°C)

Specific heat capacity of water = 4.18 J/(g*°C)

Thermochemistry : HeatCapacityLiq (4 Variations)
100 g of water (c=4.184 J/g.oC), 100 g of ethanol (c=2.46 J/g.oC), 100 g of carbon tetrachloride (c=0.861 J/g.oC), and 100 g of ethylene glycol (c=2.42 J/g.oC) at 50oC were each placed into a separate coffee cup calorimeter and the temperature recorded. The temperature of the surroundings was 20oC. After one hour the temperature of which substance would have changed by the largest amount? Assume that the rate of heat transfer from the coffee cup to the surroundings was the same in each case.

An Inexpensive Solution Calorimeter  Emma Kavanagh, Sam Mindel, Giles Robertson, and D. E. Peter Hughes
Describes the construction of a simple solution calorimeter, using a miniature bead thermistor as a temperature-sensing element, that has a response time of a few seconds and made it possible to carry out a thermometric reaction in under a minute.

Calorimeter, Coffee Cup (ChemPages Lab)  John W. Moore, Jerrold J. Jacobsen, Joe L. March
Calorimeter, Coffee Cup: this is a resource in the collection "ChemPages Laboratory Resources". A coffee cup calorimeter is a useful, simple device that can be used to measure the temperature change that accompanies a reaction. A Styrofoam cup is used because it is a good insulator. The cup will absorb (or supply) negligible amounts of heat during most General Chemistry experiments. Thus, any change in temperature is assumed to be due only to the reaction, and the heat transferred in the reaction may be calculated. The ChemPages Laboratory Resources are a set of web pages that include text, images, video, and self check questions. The topics included are those that are commonly encountered in the first-year chemistry laboratory. They have been put together for use as both a pre-laboratory preparation tool and an in-laboratory reference source.
