3U Physics


A caveat

A Caveat

Note that the equation

Q = mcDT

can only be applied if the material does not change state while changing temperature.


The heating curve

The Heating Curve

Changes of state require additional energy:


Latent heat of fusion

Latent Heat of Fusion

Additional heat is required to change a material’s state from solid to liquid (at the melting point):

Q = mLf

where Lf is the latent heat of fusion (different for different materials).


Latent heat of fusion1

Latent Heat of Fusion

This heat is absorbed by the material when it melts and released when it freezes.


Latent heat of fusion2

Latent Heat of Fusion

Latent heat explains why ice stays on the ground even when the temperature is above 0oC – it takes additional latent heat to do the melting.


Latent heat of vapourization

Latent Heat of Vapourization

Similarly, additional heat is to change a material’s state from liquid to gas (at the boiling point):

Q = mLv

where Lv is the latent heat of vapourization (different for different materials).


Latent heat of vapourization1

Latent Heat of Vapourization

This heat is absorbed by the material when it ____________ and released when it ____________.


Latent heat of vapourization2

Latent Heat of Vapourization

This heat is absorbed by the material when it evaporates and released when it condenses.


Latent heat of vapourization3

Latent Heat of Vapourization

Latent heat explains why sweating cools you down – the sweat absorbs heat energy from your skin when it evaporates.


Latent heat example

Latent Heat: Example

How much heat must be removed from 0.10 kg of water at 80.0oC to cool it to ice at -30.0oC?

Notecwater = 4200 J/kgoC

cice = 2100 J/kgoC

Lf(water) = 3.3 x 105 J/kg


Latent heat example1

Latent Heat: Example

How much heat must be removed from 0.10 kg of water at 80.0oC to cool it to ice at -30.0oC?

To cool the water to 0oC:

Q = mcDT

= (0.10 kg)(4200 J/kgoC)(80.0oC)

= 33 600 J


Latent heat example2

Latent Heat: Example

How much heat must be removed from 0.10 kg of water at 80.0oC to cool it to ice at -30.0oC?

To cool the water to 0oC:

Q = mcDT


Latent heat example3

Latent Heat: Example

How much heat must be removed from 0.10 kg of water at 80.0oC to cool it to ice at -30.0oC?

To freeze the water at 0oC:

Q = mLf


Latent heat example4

Latent Heat: Example

How much heat must be removed from 0.10 kg of water at 80.0oC to cool it to ice at -30.0oC?

To freeze the water at 0oC:

Q = mLf

= (0.10 kg)(3.3 x 105 J/kg)

= 33 000 J


Latent heat example5

Latent Heat: Example

How much heat must be removed from 0.10 kg of water at 80.0oC to cool it to ice at -30.0oC?

To cool the ice to -30.0oC:

Q = mcDT


Latent heat example6

Latent Heat: Example

How much heat must be removed from 0.10 kg of water at 80.0oC to cool it to ice at -30.0oC?

To cool the ice to -30.0oC:

Q = mcDT

= (0.10 kg)(2100 J/kgoC)(30.0oC)

= 6 300 J


Latent heat example7

Latent Heat: Example

How much heat must be removed from 0.10 kg of water at 80.0oC to cool it to ice at -30.0oC?

33 600 J + 33 000 J + 6 300 J

= 7.3 x 104 J
