Freezing and Melting of Water

Introduction

Freezing temperature is the temperature at which a substance turns from a liquid to a solid. Melting temperature is the temperature at which a substance turns from a solid to a liquid. Freezing temperature and melting temperature are characteristic properties. In this experiment, you will determine and compare the freezing and melting temperatures of water.

Objectives

In this experiment, you will

  • Measure temperature.
  • Analyze graphs of your data to determine the freezing and melting temperatures of water.
  • Determine the relationship between the freezing and melting temperatures of water.
  • Apply the concepts studied in a new situation.
