?Hvap/?Hfus
PRE-LAB EXERCISE:
1.

Consider the following data from a Heat of Vaporization experiment: (the volume correction
factor has not been applied – this is the raw data)
Temp
72.2?C
65.4?C
59.8?C
55.1?C
50.5?C
2.5°C

Volume
9.02 mL
7.78 mL
6.98 mL
6.54 mL
6.22 mL

Barometric Pressure = 758.3 torr

4.65 mL (Data Point to calculate the moles of air)

a. Calculate the moles of air trapped in the cylinder. (Use the one low temperature point and
assume barometric pressure equals the pressure of only air since PH2O will be negligible.)
b. Calculate the vapor pressure of water, Pwater, at 55.1?C. (First calculate Pair at 55.1°C using the
moles of air. Then PH2O = Barometric Pressure – Pair)
c. Assuming the slope of the line resulting from a Clausius-Clapeyron plot (LnV.P. vs 1/T) of
the data to be -5358 K, what is the value of ?Hvap in kJ/mol.
2.

The following is data from a heat of fusion experiment:
Mass of calorimeter = 4.25 g
Mass of calorimeter + water at 35.7?C = 78.52 g
Mass of calorimeter and water at 8.3?C = 103.03 g
Heat Capacity of Calorimeter Apparatus = 18.5 J/°C

Calculate the qcal in Joules. (should be negative since ?T is negative)
Calculate the qwarm water in Joules. (should be negative for the approx. 75 grams cooling)
Calculate the qcold water in Joules. (should be positive for the approx. 25 grams warming)
Calculate the qfusion in Joules. (should be positive)
Calculate the moles of ice that melted.
Calculate the ?Hfusion in kJ/mol.
