Heat of Fusion of Water Jordan Lane Partners: Isaac Gadikian, Joe Esce, Nick VanMater Dr. Mohottala/Thomas Gleason 10/27/16 Abstract: The object of this experiment is to find the heat of fusion of water using a calorimeter. The heat of fusion of water, L f [J/g*K], that was concluded from the experiment was 560.579 J/g. Introduction: The object of this experiment is to study the heat of fusion of water by observing the change in temperature over time of water after ice, that is at a significantly lower temperature than the water, is added to the water. It is known that the sum of heat energy, Q [J], is equal to zero due to the law of Conservation of Energy. This allows the heat of fusion of water, L f [J/g*K], in a system to be calculated by taking the sum of the energies from each section of the experiment and setting them all equal to zero, allowing L f to be solved for. This is shown in Equation 1. Equation 1: m c c c T c + m w c w T w + m ice c w T ice + m ice L f + m ice c w T ice water = 0

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
