Inserir no projetoP3021401Determinação da entalpia de combustão com uma bomba calorimétrica


The bomb calorimeter is used to completely burn substances in an excess of oxygen. The heat of combustion released is absorbed by the calorimetric vessel in which the bomb is immersed, and results in a temperature increase ΔT. The heat capacity of the system is first determined by adding a defined amount of heat from the combustion of benzoic acid. The combustion of the naphthalene is subsequently performed under the same conditions.


  1. Determine the enthalpy of combustion of naphtalene using a bomb calorimeter.
  2. Calculate the enthalpy of formation of naphthalene from the enthalpy of combusting unsing Hess' law.
