Heats of Reaction and Solution

In this lab, students will use a temperature sensor to determine the molar heat of solution for sodium hydroxide and ammonium chloride when they are dissolved in water, and the molar heat of reaction when magnesium reacts with hydrochloric acid.

Featured Equipment

Temperature Sensor

Wireless Temperature Sensor

The Wireless Temperature Sensor is a general-purpose sensor found in many science labs. With a rugged, waterproof design, and long-lasting battery, students can spend more time collecting data and less time dealing with equipment.

Many lab activities can be conducted with our Wireless, PASPORT, or even ScienceWorkshop sensors and equipment. For assistance with substituting compatible instruments, contact PASCO Technical Support. We're here to help.
