Calorimetry Laab
« on: November 24, 2019, 08:48:44 PM »
I have this chemistry lab where we perform a reaction between calcium and water to form calcium hydroxide and H2 in a calorimeter. After the lab, we are given the equations of formation and asked to do hess' law and find out the heat of reaction for calcium hydroxide. I am already done this part, but the last part is that is that i have to use the solubility of Ca(OH) (<0.1 mol/L) and then use that to show how much of an impact that has on the final experimental value for the heat of formation of calcium hydroxide. How do I use the solubilty to do that?

Can't say it is entirely clear to me what you are expected to do.

My best guess is that as the heat of formation is for a solid Ca(OH)2 you need to take into account dissolution heat.
