Tracking Energy Flow in Heat-Related problems

Unit 8: Calorimetry
Lesson 4 of 5

Objective: SWBAT define specific heat and identify the direction of energy flow both conceptually and quantitatively using the calorimetry equation.

Big Idea: Amount of heat transferred to a substance, its mass and identity, and the temperature change of the substance are all related.

Temperature, Heat, Exothermic, and Endothermic Reactions
High School Chemistry » Unit 6: Energy
Big Idea: Temperature is a measure of the average kinetic energy of molecules and can change as heat flows between objects. This change in heat for chemical reactions can be considered endothermic or exothermic.
