How Efficient is a Laboratory Burner in Heating Water?
Jansen, Michael P.
Journal of Chemical Education, v74 n2 p213-15 Feb 1997
Describes an experiment in which chemistry students determine the efficiency of a laboratory burner used to heat water. The reaction is assumed to be the complete combustion of methane, CH4. The experiment is appropriate for secondary school chemistry students familiar with heats of reaction and simple calorimetry. Contains pre-laboratory and post-laboratory assignments, including designing an experiment. (PVD)
