Physics 1030l lab: heat of fusion objective in this section, the theory behind heat ﬂow will be discussed the study of heat ﬂow to and from objects is the heat that melts the ice and raises the temperature of the melted ice comes from the water and calorimeter.
You will then determine the molar heat of fusion for ice (in kj/mol) excess ice will be added to warm water, at a known temperature, in a styrofoam cup calorimeter the warm use equation (1) from the discussion section to calculate the heat lost by the hot water note.
Latent heat of fusion of ice aim to calculate the latent heat of fusion of ice by measuring the temperature changes as it melts in warm water equipment 100 ml measuring cylinder 250 ml beaker data logger thermometer probe ice cube method 1) measure 1000 ml of warm water (approx 60 oc) with the 100 ml measuring cylinder.
The latent heat of fusion of ice a small amount of ice is placed in a calorimeter containing water by knowing the masses of the ice, the water, and the calorimeter, and the resulting temperature change after the ice melts, the latent heat of fusion of ice is found theory when heat is added to a substance, a temperature change is generally.
When the heat lost is equated to the heat gained, and the resulting equation solved for the latent heat of fusion l, the result is (3) where cw is the specific heat of water (419 j/g oc) and mccc, is the water equivalent of the calorimeter.
Theory of knowledge (882) world literature (1,581) all ib subjects (8,531) helpful guides experiment to measure the heat of fusion of ice title: experiment to measure the heat of fusion of ice aim: the aim of the experiment is to measure the heat of fusion of ice this is.
