Investigating the effects of salt in ice at room temperature I am going to investigate how the concentration of salt in ice, effects the rate at which it melts. Ice is water frozen into a solid. The molecules in solid ice may be arranged in different ways, called phases, depending on the temperature and pressure. Usually ice is the phase known as ice Ih, which is the most abundant of the varying solid phases on the Earth's surface. The most common phase transition to ice Ih occurs when liquid water is cooled below 0°C.
“Ice…Ice…Baby” “What is the quickest way to melt ice?” January 22, 2013 Abstract We choose to do this experiment in an attempt to discover what the quickest method for melting ice was. The purpose of this project was to find a way to melt the ice off the glass of a car windshield during the cold winter months. Our hypothesis was; if we added water to the ice it would melt quicker then adding either air or salt. The independent variable of the experiment was the molecular structure of the water found in the form of an ice cube. The dependent variable was the “amount” of time it took for all 3-ice cubes to melt.
Similar process to dew formation but at below freezing temperatures. Temperature hits dew point and water vapor condenses directly as white ice crystals. 11. Clouds are most generally classified by height above the earth’s surface. List the major height categories and the cloud types associated with each.
Research Melting is the process of changing a solid phase into the liquid. Ice is the solid form of water. It melts and turns back into a liquid when the temperature reaches 32 degrees Fahrenheit (0 degrees C) or above. It is better to find a material to soak up the water that comes out when the ice melts. It is good to do this because water makes the ice melt even faster.
In this page, we shall explain the basic work of a snowgun. But first, we shall give you some information about natural snow. Natural snow Snow differs from rain in very important ways. As it is very difficult to transform water molecules into their crystalline forms, specific atmospheric conditions are required. Thus, for snow to form in the atmosphere, we need: -water present during the vapor phase -relative humidity = 100% (saturation of the air by water ) -air temperature below 0°C -nucleating agents (or nuclei) The nucleating agents are particles ( such as dust...) which allow the condensation of vapor in order to form water or ice particles.This phenomenon is called "Nucleation".
Freezing Point Depression Dauda Sheriff CHM 152 TH 04/ 14 /2011 Abstract The freezing point of the solvent was used to determine the molar mass of the unknown. By plotting temperature versus time represented by a graph, the cooling curve reflected the difference between a pure substance and a solution. Based on the cooling curve, the pure substance took less time to freeze than the contaminated solution. The gram formula weight was used to calculate the molar mass of the unknown, which was Introduction The five phases of matter are: A solid is matter in which the molecules are very close together and cannot move around. Examples of solids include rocks, wood, and ice.
Determination of Freezing Point and Verification of Freezing Point Depression for a Mixture by Linah Richer Partners: Maike Blakely CHM317 Preformed: Nov. 8th, 2013 Report: Nov. 19th, 2013 Abstract: The purpose of this experiment is to determine the freezing point of the solvent, biphenyl, and verify the freezing point depression equation ΔTf=-ikfnsolutemsolvent. The addition of solute will lower the vapor pressure of the solvent/solute mixture resulting in the lowering of the freezing point for the mixture solution. The experiment resulted in the experimental difference in the two trial freezing points to be 0.08 K leading to a calculated change in temperature freezing to be -1.92 E -5 K, and an overall decrease in temperature freezing of the solute/solvent solution compared to the pure solvent solution. Introduction: Experimentally it is understood that the addition of a nonvolatile solute to a solvent will lower the vapor pressure, raise the boiling point and lower the freezing point. In this experiment, the freezing point for the solvent biphenyl will be determined theoretically and experimentally, as well as the verification of the freezing point depression equation for a solvent/solute mixture.
The material is called yellowcake because a drum of the powder produced by early uranium mining operations resembled a yellow cake. However, modern yellowcake usually is brown or black.

Since it was inaccurate, the melting point of another group’s sample was recorded. It was determined to be 219ºC-227ºC. Results: Percent recovery=100*(weight of pure/weight of impure) Weight of Crude Caffeine | Weight of Purified Caffeine | Percent Recovery | 0.018 g | 0.015 g | 83.33% | | Started Melting | Completely Melted | Our Sample | 51 | 139 | Other Group’s Sample | 219 | 227 | Since the melting point determined was so different from the known melting point of caffeine, there must have been impurities in the sample. This is also why some of sample melted immediately while the rest took much longer. This wide melting range also indicated impurities.
