Heating it Up! Which Fuel Source Has More Heat Energy?

Heating it Up! Which Fuel Source Has More Heat Energy?

The Materials Science and Technology Teacher's Workshop (MAST) provides this activity to compare the amount of energy given off in combustion reactions. The experiment has two different objectives. The first is the comparison of heat energy given off between different fuel sources and the second is determining the cleaner burning fuels. This lab uses temperature changes to indicate heat energy. The lesson includes step by step directions for the experiment.
