Q. 8.39

Postby William Lan 2l » Mon Jan 15, 2018 6:22 pm

How much heat is need to convert 80.0 g of ice 0.0 degrees C into liquid water at 20.0 degrees C?

Can someone give a conceptual explanation as well as the steps on approaching this problem?

I would draw the phase change chart for water first. The first phase change is at 0 degrees and the second is at 100 degrees. If you start at 0 degrees (ice) and go to 20 degrees (liquid), you need to consider both the heat required to change ice to a liquid and the heat required to raise the temperature of the liquid from 0 degrees to 20 degrees.

Step 1: (melting the ice at 0 degrees C)
deltaH=amount of moles of water x the enthalpy of fusion at standard state
deltaH=(80g/18.02g/mol)x(6.01kJ/mol)=26.7 kJ
Step 2: (raising the temperature of the liquid water from 0 degrees C to 25 degrees C)
deltaH=m(specific heat capacity)(deltaT)
