Thermochemistry is the application of thermodynamics to chemistry.

Thermochemistry is used to predict the energy exchanges that occur in the following processes:

  1. chemical reactions
  2. phase changes such as boiling and melting
  3. the formation of solutions

Thermochemistry is primarily concerned with the following state functions defined in thermodynamics:

Most identities in Thermochemistry arise from application of the first law of thermodynamics, the Law of Conservation of Energy, to these state function.
