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.

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.

Thermochemistry : CalcHHessLaw (8 Variations)
The industrial process for making sulfuric acid has three steps. Using the data given, calculate the enthalpy change for the overall reaction for the process (the equation is given below).

2S(s) + 3O2(g) + 2H2O(l)2H2SO4(l)


S(s) + O2(g) SO2(g) Hrxn = -296.83 kJ
2SO3(g)O2(g) + 2SO2(g) Hrxn = -198.2 kJ
SO3(g) + H2O(l)H2SO4(l) Hrxn = -227.72 kJ

The Correlation of Binary Acid Strengths with Molecular Properties in First-Year Chemistry  Travis D. Fridgen
This article replaces contradictory explanations for the strengths of different binary acids in first-year chemistry textbooks with a single explanation that uses a BornHaber cycle involving homolyic bond dissociation energies, electron affinities, and ion solvation enthalpies to rationalize trends in the strengths of all binary acids.

Why Chemical Reactions Happen (James Keeler and Peter Wothers)  John Krenos
By concentrating on a limited number of model reactions, this book presents chemistry as a cohesive whole by tying together the fundamentals of thermodynamics, chemical kinetics, and quantum chemistry, mainly through the use of molecular orbital interpretations.
