Regents Gummi Bear and Very Cool Demo Notes.pdf

Gummy Bear Demo Notes:
In this demonstration potassium chlorate – K2ClO3 was heated to a liquid demonstrating an endothermic phase change and then decomposed into O2 and KCl.  The oxygen reacted with the sugar in the Gummi Bear exothermically. 

1. melting the white solid:                  KClO3(s)  +  heat   —> KClO3(l)

2. hot liquid reacts:                            2KClO3(l)  +  heat    —>   2 KCl(s) +   3 O2(g)


3.  Sucrose (table sugar in gummi bear reacts with oxygen: 

                               C12H22O11  +   35/2 O2   —>   12CO2  +   11H2O   +   heat (5635 kJ)                                                                                     sucrose

 Main focus: 

1. To relate exothermic and endothermic chemical reactions in terms of breaking bonds and forming new bonds.
2. To define Stable vs. Unstable in terms of Potential energy
3. To identify reactants, products, and heat of reaction in potential energy diagrams.
4. To identify ∆H values in Table and determine if exothermic or endothermic.


Period  6:
1. Revisit the 2 demos and their reactions:
Regents Gummi Bear and Very Cool Demo Notes.pdf
a) Physical vs chemical – 
Physical change increase in temp when endothermic and decrease in temperature when exothermic
– chemical do not change temp but make the environment warmer or cooler when they react. 
b) Exothermic vs Endothermic
c)  ∆H values
d) Stability of reactants or Products

e) Bonds broken vs. Bonds Formed

f) TABLE I reference Table!
