Conduction occurs in both solids and liquids when adjoining particles vibrate so that they diffuse heat to one another throughout a space, until all of the particles are the same temperature. Conduction performs a significant role in the lithosphere as this is the place conduction occurs and also as this is where the Earth loses most of its internal heat. Along the mid-ocean ridges where the temperature is significantly high, mainly along the most active and major ridges, the tectonic plates thicken as they move away from the ridges and cool. From this evidence we can see that conduction is an important process as it moves the heat from the upper mantle through the lithosphere to the Earth’s crust. Convection is another method of heat transfer.
For this experiment, when the temperature increases, collision between the particles also increases. Hence, the rate of reaction increases with increasing concentration. It was also observed that the more crowded the molecules are, the more likely they are to collide and react with one another. In addition, temperature usually has a major effect on the rate of a chemical reaction. Molecules at higher temperature have more thermal energy.
The energy that atoms and molecules have relates to their motion and their position. They have translational kinetic energy due to their translational (straight line) motion as well as rotational and vibrational kinetic energy. Also, the particles have potential energy form the attractions between them or form their mutual repulsion when they are at close range. The total internal of kinetic energy all these forms of energy in a particular substance is thermal energy. (Ron 2011) The temperature of an object or collection of matter is the average kinetic energy of the particles.
IDEAL GASES TASK: Examine an isothermal process when the temperature is constant. RESEARCH QUESTION: How does the pressure depend on the volume? INTRODUCTION: In this lab report, I am going to do an experiment with isothermal process, which is when the temperature doesn’t change. We used special devices, programs, materials and technology for this lab report, in order to find the relationship between pressure, volume and temperature. HYPOTHESIS: I think, that the greater the volume, the lower the pressure will be and vice versa.
What is a thermal runaway reaction? Source: http://www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/indg254.htm An exothermic reaction can lead to thermal runaway, which begins when the heat produced by the reaction exceeds the heat removed. The surplus heat raises the temperature of the reaction mass, which causes the rate of reaction to increase. This in turn accelerates the rate of heat production. Thermal runaway can occur because, as the temperature increases, the rate at which heat is removed increases linearly but the rate at which heat is produced increases exponentially.
ii) liquids > vibrating particles have sufficient energy to move from their fixed positions to other parts within a liquid. > liquids take the shape of their container. iii) gases > particles have sufficient kinetic energy to help escape the attractive forces from other particles. > gases take up the complete volume of a container. The kinetic theory provides vital information on the sciences we learn.
It is useful at predicting reactant and product quantities through a reaction. There is enthalpy, Hess’s Law and is related to thermodynamics. It is applied in the real world by adding ice to water, burning fuel for a vehicle, and when power plants pump water into their machinery to keep them cool and not overheat. 2.In an insulated container, you mix 200g of water at 80°C with 100g of water at 20°C. After mixing, the temperature of the water is 60°C.
AIM/ OBJECTIVE In this experiment, bomb calorimetry will be used to determine the heat of combustion (heat that the fuel gives off over a certain amount of time when it’s ignited). Determine the Calorific Value of the fuel used and show how the practically determined value compares to the theoretical calculations and industry standards 2. THEORY A bomb calorimeter is a sealed container capable of holding several atmospheres of gas pressure. It measures the enthalpy of reaction by carrying out the combustion reaction under constant volume conditions. This exothermic reaction increases the temperature inside the bomb, which then transfers the energy to the external water jacket raising the external temperature.
The calorimeter was designed in 1780 by a chemist named Antoine Lavoisier with help from a mathematician by the name of Pierre Simon de Laplace. Now a widespread tool, we will be using the calorimeter, and our knowledge of equations to find the specific heat of zinc and aluminum. OBJECTIVE/GOAL In this experiment we will Measure the mass and temperature of water in a calorimeter Heat a metal sample of a known mass to a specific temperature Calculate the change in water temperature caused by adding the hot metal sample Calculate the specific heat of the metal using your mass and temperature data PROCEDURE 1. Prepare a data table as directed in the Analysis. Safety goggles and lab apron must be worn for the experiment.
I predict that the volume of gas expelled will increase with temperature. I believe this for a few reasons. The first is due to the 'Kinetic theory', this states that the extent of a molecules movement depends on its state and temperature. As temperature increases, the particles become more 'exited', and so move around and collide and react more frequently and rapidly. It is these collisions which cause the reaction.
