Reaction Energy

Specific Heat
The specific heat of any substance is
the amount of heat required to raise
the temperature of one gram of that
substance by one degree Celsius.
Because different substances have
different compositions, each
substance has its own specific heat.

Exothermic and Endothermic


Exothermic: Heat flows out of
the system (to the surroundings).
The value of q is negative.
Endothermic: Heat flows into the
system (from the surroundings).
The value of q is positive.

Specific Heat

q = m Cp T
q = heat (J)
Cp = specific heat (J/(g.C)
m = mass (g)
T = change in temperature = Tf

Measuring Heat
Heat changes that occur during
chemical and physical processes can
be measured accurately and precisely
using a calorimeter.
A calorimeter is an insulated device
used for measuring the amount of
heat absorbed or released during a
chemical or physical process.

Deposition

Freezing, condensation and


deposition are exothermic
processes (heat is released).
Melting, vaporization and
sublimation are endothermic
processes (heat is absorbed).

Latent Heat
q = m Hv
q = m Hf
Hv = latent heat of vaporization (J/g)
Hf = latent heat of fusion (J/g)

Energy and Phase Change


Latent heat of vaporization (Hv) is the
energy required to change one gram
of a substance from liquid to gas.
Latent heat of fusion (Hf) is the
energy required to change one gram
of a substance from solid to liquid.
