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.
