Thermochemistry Worksheet

The study of energy and heat with respect to chemical reaction and physical transformation is called Thermochemistry. Every chemical reaction either release or absorb energy and phase may change, such as in melting and boiling.

Thermochemistry plays a vital role in predicting reactant and product quantities.
