    How do i plan for the reaction?

    To calculate the enthalpy change of reaction of cuso4 into cuso4 . 5h20

    I need a equipment list, method and safety

    Any help much appreciated

    The equation for the energy given off by a reaction is q = mTc, where:

    T is the temperature change,
    c is the specific heat capacity of water,
    and m is the mass of water
    To find the enthalpy change when you know q you simply divide q by the number of moles of CuSO4, then pop a minus sign in front to show that this energy is lost from the system. With this in mind, what kind of measurements do you need to make to find the enthalpy change?
    For your method, you simply need to describe what you would do.
    For safety, think about what equipment you're using and what risks could be associated with it. For example, if you're using electricity, you might say that there is a risk of electrocution, for glassware, you might say that some of it could break and cut you, etc, etc

    There's a simple risk assessment table you could use for the last part with these headings, I've included a sample to make it clear how you would present it:
    Hazard Risk Management
    Glass Cutting Wear gloves

    for equipment you might need a bunsen burner, a tripod stand, glasswares, thermometer, a timer and yeah you'll need water too. I don't know if that helped and goodluck
