I4-03: LATENT HEAT - ICE TO WATER TO STEAM

Additional Info

  • ID Code: I4-03
  • Purpose: Show latent heat as ice is transformed to water and then to steam.
  • Description: A flask is filled to within one inch of the brim with a mixture of water and ice cubes at the freezing temperature of water. The flask is then heated for about 15 to 20 minutes with the burner on high, with the temperature measured by the dial thermometer. If you were to create a plot of temperature as a function of time, it would clearly show that extra heat is required to produce the ice-water and water-steam phase transitions.
