Ebenezer, Jazlin V.; Fraser, Duncan M.
Science Education, v85 n5 p509-35 Sep 2001
Examines first-year chemical engineering students' conceptions of the energy changes taking place in dissolution. Students were individually interviewed and transcripts (n=17) were analyzed using a phenomenographic methodology.
