What happens to the heat from the lava?

Why does lava cool more quickly in water

than on land?

introduction to thermochemistry
Introduction to Thermochemistry
  • Thermochemistry (or Thermodynamics) is the study of heat, energy, and temperature changes that occur during chemical reactions (One of the main courses of study in Physical Chemistry)
  • Law of Conservation of Energy (1st Law of Thermodynamics) – The law of conservation of energy states that energy may neither be created nor destroyed. Therefore the sum of all the energies in the system is a constant. (Whether a reaction flask or the universe
temperature vs heat
Temperature vs. Heat
  • Temperature is the measure of the average kinetic energy of the particles in a substance
    • Measure using a thermometer
    • Rises when heat is added
    • Falls when heat is removed
  • Heat(q) is the energy that is transferred between two objects
    • Cannot be measured directly
    • Can only detect the changes caused by heat



thermochemical reactions
Thermochemical Reactions
  • System – reactants and products
  • Surroundings – the reaction container
exothermic vs endothermic

measuring heat
Measuring Heat
  • The Joule (J) is the SI unit of heat and energy
  • The calorie (cal) is also used to measure heat capacity and is defined by the amount of heat needed to raise the temperature of 1g of pure water by 1C
  • 1 J = 0.2390 cal 1 cal = 4.184 J
  • NOTE: The energy contained in food is measured in Calories (Cal) = 1000 calories = 1 kcal
heat capacity vs specific heat
Heat Capacity vs Specific Heat
  • Heat capacity is the amount of heat needed to raise the temperature of a substance by 1C

J/C or J/K

  • Specific heat capacity (C) is the amount of heat needed to raise the temperature of one gram of a substance by 1C

J/gC or J/gK

Which of these pictures contains more heat?

C = q / m xDT

q = C x m xDT
