Melting Ice is Hot Stuff!

For Teachers 4th
Fourth graders determine the amount of energy required to melt ice using a calorimeter. They calculate the Molar Heat of Fusion of Ice.
Lesson Planet

How Much Energy Does the Earth Receive from the Sun?

For Teachers 8th - 12th
Students explore energy. For this science lesson, students conduct an experiment in which they measure how much energy is produced by the sun. Students build a calorimeter to measure the amount of energy.

Calorimetry Lab

For Students 9th - 10th
In this calorimetry lab, students apply the information read about a calorimeter to conduct a scientific investigation. Students record their data in a chart. Students use the information from the chart to calculate specific heat of...
Lesson Planet

Heat of Combustion Lab

For Students 9th - 10th
In this heat of combustion lab, students measure the heat of combustion for paraffin wax, butane, and cheetos. Students will apply the 1st law of thermodynamics to calculate the heat lost by the fuel and the heat gained by the water to...

Ice Ain't Easy

For Teachers 9th - 12th
High schoolers are introduced to the laws of thermodynamics. The 1st law of thermodynamics states that the energy must be conserved when two objects of different temperatures come in contact. If one object gains energy, the other object...
Lesson Planet

You Are What You Eat!

For Teachers 5th - 8th
Pupils calculate the calorie content of food. In this chemistry lesson, students plan a healthy meal based on RDA. They devise an exercise to burn extra calories.
