2. Measurement of an enthalpy change

To determine an enthalpy change which cannot be measured directly. The reaction involves the conversion of anhydrous copper(II) sulfate into hydrated copper(II) sulfate. Requirements hydrated copper(II) sulfate (small) crystals anhydrous copper(II) sulfate powder polystyrene cup (as a calorimeter) 250 cm3 or 400cm3 beaker (as appropriate for holding the cup) stand and clamp 0 ºC to 50 °C glass or digital thermometer
