Stephanie Pham Latent Heat of Fusion of Ice Lab IB Chemistry SL R. W. Johnson High School November 10, 2010 Candidate ID Number: 003342-005 Instructor Design: Research Question: What is the value, in Jg -1 , of the latent heat of fusion of ice? Purpose: Latent Heat of Fusion of Ice is defined as the amount of energy needed to melt 1 gram of ice into water at 0˚C and your task is to calculate a value for this in Jg -1. Variables: Independent- volume of ice cubes Dependent- temperature of water mixture Controls- o Same equipment used throughout the lab o Size/shape of ice cubes should be uniform in order to get consistent data Materials and Equipment: an insulated cup, suitable thermometer Chemicals: 100 mL of H 2 O freely melting ice cubes Safety: 1

Although water is generally not a dangerous chemical, goggles were worn as a precaution for the duration of the lab. Procedures: In all aspects of this simple lab be aware of uncertainties. a) Into the insulated cup measure 100 mL of water using a 100 mL graduated cylinder and record its temperature. b) Take a freely melting ice cube, which, if freely melting, will be at 0˚C and quickly dry it with a paper towel. Drop it into the water in the insulated cup. c) Using the thermometer, stir the contents and record the temp of the water when all the ice has melted. d) Find the final volume of liquid in the cup using the same graduated cylinder so that you can determine the “volume” of ice added and thus the mass added since 1 gram of water has a volume of 1 mL at about room temperature. e) Repeat at least twice to verify your results. f) Use the data you collected to calculate the latent heat of fusion of ice. By the way, the correct answer is 335 J/g.

    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.
