Heating ice, water and water vapor In the region of the curve where we are not undergoing a phase transition, we are simply changing the temperature of one particular phase of water (either solid, liquid or gas) as a function of heat input The slope of the lines relates temperature to heat input The greater the slope, the greater the temperature change for a given unit of heat input The amount of heat needed to change the temperature of a substance is given by the specific heat or molar heat capacity o Specific heat of ice = 2.09 J/g °K o Specific heat of water = 4.18 J/g °K o Specific heat of water vapor = 1.84 J/g °K In the regions of the curve where we are undergoing a phase transition, the heat energy input is not raising the temperature of the sample, rather it is being used to

Unformatted text preview: disrupt the intermolecular forces H fus = 6.01 kJ/mol H vap = 40.67 kJ/mol Calculate the enthalpy change for converting 2 moles of ice at -25C to +125C. Converting to grams: (2 mol)*(18 g/mol) = 36 g Heating ice from -25 to 0C: (25C)*(2.09 J/g K)*(36 g) = 1.88 kJ Fusion of ice to liquid water: (6.01 kJ/mol)*(2 mol) = 12.02 kJ Heating of water from 0 to 100C: (100C)*(4.18 J/g K)*(36 g) = 15.05 kJ Vaporization of water to water vapor: (40.67 kJ/mol)*(2 mol) = 81.34 kJ Heating of water vapor from 100 to 125C: (1.84 J/g K)*(25C)*(36 g) = 1.66 kJ Grand total: 1.88 + 12.02 + 15.05 + 81.34 + 1.66 = 111.95 kJ...
