I. Introduction The term enthalpy is used to describe the thermodynamic potential of a system. Heat of reaction, one form of enthalpy, is the energy given off by a substance upon combustion. It can be measured using a Parr bomb, which is an adiabatic container, held at a constant volume that ignites a . . .
CHM 2412 – Physical Chemistry Lab I
Introduction During this laboratory experiment, a gas chromatograph was used to analyze the ethanol and butanol content of solutions of known mass ratios, and then construct a calibration curve using calculated area ratios from the graphs produced by the gas chromatograph. A solution of unknown mass ratio . . .
