Formal experiment 1: Heating and cooling curve of water

See on Scoop.itPHYSICAL SCIENCES BREAK 1.0

Aim

To investigate the heating and cooling curve of water.

Apparatus

beakers

ice

Bunsen burner

thermometer

water

Chipa Thomas Maimela‘s insight:

Method

Place some ice in a beaker.

Measure the temperature of the ice and record it.

After 1 minute measure the temperature again and record it. Repeat every minute, until at least 3 minutes after the ice has melted.

Plot a graph of time versus temperature for the heating of ice.

Heat some water in a beaker until it boils. Measure and record the temperature of the water.

Remove the water from the heat and measure the temperature every 1 minute, until the beaker is cool to touch.

Warning:

Be careful when handling the beaker of hot water. Do not touch the beaker with your hands, you will burn yourself.

  1. when trying this experiment try using a hot plate a magnetic stirer to speed up the melting process. Also use a gas stove rather than a bunsen burner, experiment seem to flow better.

  2. I need memorandum of heating and cooling curve of water experiment grade 10
