Introduction –

Latent heat of fusion of ice is the energy required for ice to change state from solid to liquid water or vice versa. The latent heat of fusion of ice is estimated to be 333 Joules/gram. In the experiment, the latent heat of fusion of ice would be found using the below mentioned “Method”.

Apparatus:1. A few Ice Cubes 2. 100cm3 of water 3. A Calorimeter 4. A digital Thermometer 5. A Measuring Cylinder (marked till 100cm 3) 6. A digital balance

Method:1. Take an ice cube in a beaker & measure the mass. 2. Measure 50cm3 water in the measuring cylinder. (50cm3 in this case). 3. Measure & note down the initial temperatures of the two (ice & water) separately using the digital thermometer. 4. Mix the two in the copper beaker of the calorimeter. 5. Wait for the equilibrium temperature, where the temperature is stable. 6. Note down the final, stable temperature. 1

Mass & Temperature of water . The display of the digital thermometer should not come in contact with water or ice. The mass of water should be measured separately as 50ml of water might not have a mass of 50g due to varying density of the tap water used. Independent :– The Ice Cube used – it’s mass 2. The mass of the Ice cube should be measured in a beaker & not directly on the balance.The copper calorimeter – it’s mass Safe Test:1. Fair Test:1. 2. The digital balance should be used carefully. 4. 2.The surrounding temperature & other conditions .The Apparatus used . The calorimeter should be insulated with sponge or a similar insulator. Constant :– Specific Heat Capacity of ice & water . 2 . The sensor of the digital thermometer should not be touching the walls or the base of the beaker while measuring the temperature of water. 3.Variables:1. Dependent :– Latent Heat of Fusion of Ice & the equilibrium temperature 3.

Evaluation:There could have been a number of error that might have occurred causing an inaccuracy in the experiment results that were obtained: The ice from when it was removed from the freezer & bought to the apparatus could have melted a little gaining some energy from the atmosphere causing an error while calculating the total heat gained by the ice.128) 13.1 x 5. There might have been some heat loss from the copper beaker in the calorimeter to the atmosphere causing an error while calculating the total heat lost by water.6%.5 Joules/gram. the error % was 11. This means that the result obtained from this experiment was 11. The total heat loss might not have been equal to the total heat gained The apparatus may have had some errors for example.4) =149.Energy Gained – with substituted values Latent Heat of Fusion of Ice .4% accurate.2 x Lf) Lf = 4242 – (149.5 = 38.668 + 205. the digital balance & the digital thermometer might have got affected by the minor surrounding changes.6% inaccurate or (100 – 11.2 x 2.5 Joules/gram Conclusion:As seen in the calculations above.2 x Lf) + (13. 4 .5 (38.2 x 2. as mentioned in the introduction.6 Therefore.6 = 88. • Error percentage 333 – 294. is 333 Joules/gram.2 294.4) + (13.5 / 333) x 100 = 11.668 + 205.with substituted values Latent Heat of Fusion of Ice (13.

All calculations were made using figures that were rounded off to make the calculations more simplified which may have added to the inaccuracy in the final figures obtained for the latent heat of fusion of ice. The experiment could not be repeated due to time constraints so the average could not be taken which would have been more accurate. 5 . There may have been a parallax error while measuring the volume of water in the measuring cylinder.
