This song describes the parts of the calorimetry formula and the experimental methods used to determine the joules of heat gained or lost by a change carried out in a measured mass of water.

Lyrics: I was workin at my lab bench Late one night you see I gots to make reactions For my class of Chemistry Just right then my beaker Began to get real hot I stuck in a big sensor And said Hey, whatchoo got? The temperature kept risin And I began to fret I dont want my experiment To explode and get me wet! So I looked up this reaction To see what made it sick Turns out that it is right OK Cuz its exothermic! Energy in bonds gets lost And sent out to be free Turns out this puppy got a loss In potential energy. So how will I ever calculate This quantity called q? Here is the equation And I leave it up to you! Em cee delta tee! Em cee delta tee! Em cee delta tee! Thats calorimetry, yo! So I put it in some water Whose mass I sure did know And plugged it in for Em And said Now there you go! Water has this real neat thing Thats called specific heat Its 4.18 joules per gram Hey man, thats really sweet! It tells you how fast it heats up When someone gives it juice Its constant, and hey, its called Cee Be sure to keep it loose! The temperature kept risin From beginnin to the end So I worked out the difference Thats Delta Tee, my friend! When I plugged the numbers in I got some happenin joules I tell you this calorimetry Is monkey funky cool! So from now on when you or me Has reason to calculate Just check out this equation There aint no need to wait! Em cee delta tee! Em cee delta tee! Em cee delta tee! Thats calorimetry, dog!
