Leybold Chemistry Experiments.
- Understanding the various states of matter
- Transition of substances between different aggregate states
- Melting of ice (transition solid - liquid)
- Boiling of water (transition liquid - gaseous)
Experiment C18.104.22.168 examines the behavior of water at different temperatures. To that end, ice (solid water) is slowly heated until it melts and then evaporates. At the boiling point and the melting point, the temperature does not change until the substance has transitioned completely to the other state. The boiling point and melting point are easy to determine in this way.
