Enthalpy of Reaction and Rate Investigations by Years 11 and 12 Students

Years 11 and 12 students have been further developing their experimental techniques and applying their skills through their completion of hands-on practical work.

In recent weeks, students have conducted calorimetric experiments for enthalpy of reaction, investigated rates of reaction experimentally, and monitored acid-base titrations with a pH metre, analysing and evaluating their results.

For the enthalpy of reaction, they were really successful in achieving the classic textbook (and Exam Paper 3!) curve of temperature against time, using a blue-tooth temperature probe, as they monitored the temperature during the chemical reaction of copper sulphate in solution with zinc powder.
