Lab F: Heat Fusion of Ice Professor: Haizheng Zhuang Physics 103A-005 Experiment Date : 10/09/208 Due Date: 10/16/2018 Objective: 1. To determine the heat of fusion of ice using a calorimeter. 2. To come to a deeper understanding of the principle of conversation of energy as it applies to thermal energy. Introduction: The goal of this lab was to calculate the heat of fusion of ice. Using a calorimeter, we measured the initial temperature of the water, melted an ice cube, and measured the final temperature. The equation that was used to solve for latent heat of ice was M I L F + M I c W (T F – 0) + M c c c (T 0 – T F ) M I = the mass of ice M W = the mass of the water at temperature T0 L F = the heat of fusion for ice c W = the specific heat of water =1 cal/g ० C c c = the specific heat of calorimeter material (Aluminum) Experimental Procedure: Follow procedure listed in Physics 103A Lab Manual, 8th Edition, on pages 24-25. Results: Mass of calorimeter inner cup and stirrer M c = 83.80 g
Mass of calorimeter inner cup, stirrer, and water M c + M W = 249.65 g
