5.2 Heat and the First Law of Thermodynamics

Once we have an understanding of heat and the First Law of Thermodynamics, we can use these concepts to solve example problems involving heat lost and heat gained.

5.2 Relationships Involving Heat Example Problem

Now that we have an understanding of some Thermochemical properties, we can use principles from the 1st law of Thermodynamics to come up with a sign convention indicating whether or not a reaction gives off heat or absorbs heat. We refer to such reactions as exothermic and endothermic respectively.
