IntroductionObjective: The purpose of this laboratory is to determine the heat of fusion of ice using a calorimeter and understand the principle of conservation of energy as it applies to thermal energy.Background: As a material undergoes a change in state, the temperature of that material during the change is constant. The heat that is added during the process causes the change. The constant temperature in which solid is changed to liquid is known as the melting point and the heat per unit required for phase change is known as heat of fusion.ProcedureWeigh the calorimeter inner cup and stirrer and record in data table. Fill the inner cup with tap water and mix it with hot water to about 10C above room temperature. Weigh once again with the water and record in data table. Place the inner cup, stirrer and water into thecalorimeter and insert the thermometer. Stir the water gently until a constant temperature
