Without referring to tables, predict which of the following has the higher enthalpy in each case:
(a) 1 mol CO2(s) or 1 mol CO2(g) at the same temperature, (b) 2 mol of hydrogen atoms or 1 mol of H2, (c) 1 mol H2(g) and 0.5 mol O2(g) at 25 °C or 1 mol H2O(g) at 25 °C, (d) 1 mol N2(g) at 100 °C or 1 mol N2(g) at 300 °C.
In a classroom, it is the responsibility of the teacher to create a positive learning environment for the students in the classroom, which is very important for the success of the students in their education. When I am a teacher, I will create an inviting learning environment in my classroom, which will encourage and motivate my students to do well, and will also be a positive environment that will get my students excited to learn. In order to motivate my students, I will be sure to show them the importance of their work and remind them that their education is important to their future. “Motivation directs behavior towards particular goals.” (Ormrod, 2015) By helping my students set educational goals, they will then be motivated to achieve them. I can motivate my students through grades, and giving them good grades when they do well on an assignment, and showing them the positive outcomes that come with getting good grades in school. This extrinsic motivation will put my students on a path of success, but their intrinsic motivation will be the only thing that keeps them motivated. It is also important for educators to understand that each student is developing in many different ways, and having a better understanding of where the student is in their cognitive development
