of product for a given mass of reactant Mass of product Mass of reactant forms of energy There are various forms of energy but they fall under two categories Potential Energy Energy of position or stored energy Chemical Energy Energy stored in the bonds of atoms and molecules Nuclear Energy Energy stored in the nucleus of an atom Stored Mechanical Energy Energy stored in objects by the application of a force Gravitational Energy The energy of place or position Kinetic Energy Energy of motion Radiant Energy Electromagnetic energy that travels in transverse waves Thermal Energy The internal energy in substances the vibration and movement of atoms and molecules within substances Motion The movement of objects or substances from one place to another Sound The movement of energy through substances in longitudinal waves Electrical Energy The energy of the movement of electrons 1st Law of Thermodynamics Energy can neither be created or destroyed difference between heat and temperature Heat is energy Temperature is the speed the molecules in a substance are moving energy units J cal Cal The joule J Ajoule is the amount of energy required to raise a 1kg object 10 cm against the force of gravity The calorie cal A calorie is the amount of energy required to raise the temperature of 1 gram of water by 1 degree Celsius Conversion of units 1 ca 4184J 1 kca 1000 cal 1 Cal 1 dietary calorie what a calorimeter is and how it work A calorimeter determines the chemical energy in calories of a substance by burning the substance and measuring the increase in temperature of the surrounding water exothermic and endothermic reactions Exothermic reactions give off heat Endothermic reactions absorb heat bond energies Bond Breaking requires energy Bond Forming gives off energy heat of reaction from bond energy calculations Energy taken to break bonds kJ Energy given off when bonds are formed kJ heat given off kJ sources and purification of drinking water Surface Water is from lakes rivers and reservoirs Ground water is pumped up from wells drilled into underground aquifers An aquifer is an underground lake Water goes to the James River Treatment Plant Settling basins remove large and medium sized particles Filtration removes small to minute particles Aeration and disinfection improves taste and kills bacteria Chemicals are added to buffer water and provide dental protection Water leaves the plant and goes through pipes to homes and businesses about solute solvent and solution Solvents are substances capable of dissolving other substances usually present in the greater amount Solutes are substances dissolved in a solvent usually present in a smaller amount Solution is the substance produced when a solute and solvent are combined mass percent solutesolvent calculations Parts per hundred percent 20g of NaCl in 80g of water is a 20 NaCl solution Can be mixed by mass or volume Molarity M moles soluteliter of solution To have a mole of something you must have the atomic weight in grams of a substance One mole of water is 18g One mole of methane is 16g Same number of molecules concentration of 1 mole of solute added to a liter flask then filled with the solvent until the 1 L mark is reached creates a 1M solution
