Combustion Reactions

Aim:

  • To find out how much heat is in a candle.

  • One way to find out is to measure how much wax is burnt while raising the temperature of water in a test tube by say 200C.


Materials method

Materials & Method

  • Tea light candles

  • Thermometer

  • Retort stands with two clamps

  • Measure and record the mass of the candle.

  • Set the equipment up as shown and measure and record the temperature of the water.

  • Light the candle, and wait for the temperature to rise 10 or 20 0C.

  • Measure and record the new mass of the candle.

  • Calculate the change in mass of the candle.

  • Divide the temperature rise by the change in mass to give a value with units of 0C/g wax

  • Compare your results with the rest of the class.
