Thermal Decomposition of Sodium Hydrogencarbonate
Added by Dr. Martin Armitage on Dec 15, 2008
This activity examines one experimental method of determining the temperature at which a chemical reaction becomes feasible. Students will also use thermodynamic data to make a theoretical prediction of the temperature and compare the results of the different approaches.
This item teaches:
- how the temperature at which a reaction is feasible can be determined
- how the feasibility of a reaction can be determined by the balance between entropy an enthalpy
- Students will examine one experimental method of determining the temperature at which a chemical reaction becomes feasible.
- Students will also use thermodynamic data to make a theoretical prediction of the temperature and compare the results of the different approaches.
