Re: Culinary Chemistry

If you're interested in learning more about the science behind baking and chemistry, I would totally recommend watching a TedEd video about the science of cookies! That video got me interested in baking in the first place since I was excited to learn the science behind it. And as a reward for learn...

Re: Chemistry Posts in 14B

A constant‑volume calorimeter was calibrated by carrying out a reaction known to release 1.83 kJ of heat in 0.200 L of solution in the calorimeter (q=−1.83 kJ) , resulting in a temperature rise of 2.98 ∘C . In a subsequent experiment, 100.0 mL of 0.20 M HClO2(aq) and 100.0 mLof 0.20 M NaOH(aq) were ...
