Enthalpy of Hydration

Written by Rachel Buckley Abstract This experiment, Enthalpy of Hydration, is used to calculate the enthalpy of hydration of magnesium sulfate by measuring the temperature change of both anhydrous magnesium sulfate and hydrated magnesium sulfate when they are added separately to two different calorimeters and allowed to react. The results are then used to calculate the enthalpy of hydration. Methods and Materials First, one sample of anhydrous, between 7 and 8 grams, and one sample of hydrate, between 15.3 and […]
