Physics 103A LAB F: HEAT OF FUSION OF ICE
1. INTRODUCTION: The experiment helped dive deeper into the understanding of the principal of conservation of energy as it applies to thermal energy. When a material undergoes a change of state, from solid to liquid or liquid to gas, the temperature of material remains constant while the heat added during the process produces the phase change. The constant temperature at which a solid material changes to a liquid known as its melting point and the heat per unit mass required in the phase change is known as the heat of fusion. This experiment lets us observe the change of state between hot/cold water with ice. As well as the heat lost and gained to the surrounding. All combined it gives us equation. MiLf + MiCw(Tf-0) = MwCw(To-Tf) + McCc(To-Tf) 2. EXPERIMENTAL PROCEDURE: The process of the experiment was fairly simple. We first measured the inner cup and stirrer when they were dry to get a standard weigh without any variables. Afterward we added tap water and mixed it with hot water to record our new weight. After a few minutes of the water
