Calorimetry experiment Name: ______________________________ When you burn food, the chemical energy in food gets converted into thermal energy. The more chemical energy the food has in it, the more energy gets converted to thermal energy. What is energy transfer? What is energy transformation? Explain the Law of Conservation of Energy: What form of energy is stored in food? ___________________________ Prediction What type of food below do you think will have the most amount of stored energy? Why do you think this is? What type of food below do you think will have the least amount of stored energy? Why do you think this is? Table of results Name of food Mass Initial Final Change of of temperature temperature temperature food of water (C) of water (C) (C) (g) Amount of joules released (J) 4.2 X 20 x change in temperature ÷ mass of the food Draw a bar graph of the amount of Joules released in each food. Make sure you include a title at the top and label the X and Y axis. Which food released the most energy? __________________________ Which food released the least amount of energy? ________________________ How could we improve this experiment to make it more reliable?
