Unformatted text preview: results to the data given below. Below is the relevant data taken from CRC Handbook on Chemistry and Physics: Enthalpy of fusion: Δ H = 6.01 KJ/mol; Density of water: 0.9999 g/cm 3 Density of ice: 0.917 g/cm 3 Melting point of ice as a function of pressure: P (bar) T ( C) 1.0 0.00 10.0-0.06 100-0.74 500-4.02 1000-8.80 4. A traveler to Quito, the capital of Equador, may find that it takes longer to cook in boiling water. The altitude of Quito is 2,850 m. A table gives me a typical barometric pressure at this altitude to be 0.71 bar (instead of 1.01 bar at the sea level). Estimate the boiling temperature of water at this pressure. The vaporization enthalpy of water is 40.6 kJ/mol....
