Defines molar heat of solution and shows a sample calculation using this parameter.
Goes over an example problem demonstrating how to solve for the enthalpy of solution of a system, given the change in temperature and the masses of water and the solute species.
To distinguish between the ‘scientific’ and ‘everyday’ usage of key vocabulary terms using Everyday Words in Science.
Discover the chemistry behind hot packs and cold packs and how they help aching muscles.
Defines the enthalpy of solution to be the sum of the lattice enthalpy (energy required to break apart the bonds of the solute) and the hydration enthalpy (energy required to dissolve ions in solution).
