Thermochemistry (Enthalpy)

Broad Concept: The driving forces of chemical reactions are energy and entropy. This has important implications for many applications (synthesis of new compounds, meteorology, and industrial engineering).

10.1 Interpret the law of conservation of energy.
10.2 Explain the relationship between energy transfer and disorder in the universe.
10.3 Analyze the energy changes involved in physical and chemical processes using calorimetry.
10.4 Apply Hess's law to determine the heat of reaction.
