Using enthalpy to assess fuel sources part of MnSCU Partnership:PKAL-MnSCU Activities
In this activity, students calculate the enthalpy of combustion of a variety of different fuels. This activity gives the students practice in balancing equations, calculating reaction enthalpy from tabulated enthalpies of formation, and puts the concept of enthalpy in context of a current issue. It also gives students a better understanding of how different numerical data can be used to make different claims about an issue.
