Change of State • Matter exists in 3 states: • Solid • Liquid • Gas Consider water: vaporization(takes place at boiling point) fusion(at melting point) ice water steam solidification condensation at freezing point at boiling point
Heats of Transformation • When energy is absorbed as heat by a solid or liquid, the temperature of the object does not necessarily rise. • The thermal energy may cause the mass to change from one phase, or state, to another. • The amount of energy per unit mass that must be transferred as heat when a mass undergoes a phase change is called the heat of transformation, L.
Heat of Fusion • To melt a solid means to change its from the solid state to the liquid state. This process requires energy because the molecules of the solid must be freed from their rigid structure. • To freeze a liquid to form a solid is the reverse of melting and requires that energy be removed from the liquid so that the molecules can settle into a rigid structure.
Heat of Fusion • When the phase change is from solid to liquid, the sample must absorb heat; when the phase change is from a liquid to solid, the sample must release heat. • The heat of transformation for these phase changes is called the heat of fusion, Lf. • Water: Lf = 334 J/g = 79.5 cal/g
Heat of Vaporization • To vaporize a liquid means to change it from the liquid state to the vapor or gas state. This process requires energy because the molecules must be freed from the liquid state. • Condensing a gas to a liquid is the reverse of vaporizing; it requires that energy be removed from the gas so that the molecules can cluster together instead of flying away from each other. • The heat of transformation for these phase changes is called the heat of vaporization, Lv. • Water: Lv = 2256 J/g = 539 cal/g

Heat of Combustion (HC) • The amount of heat released per unit mass or unit volume of a substance when the substance is completely burned. • Heats of combustion are used as a basis for comparing the heating value of fuels, since the fuel that produces the greater amount of heat for a given cost is the more economic. • Equation:
Phase Change Example • Heat is added to 0.5 kg of water at 20° C. How many joules of heat energy are required to change the water to steam at 110° C? • Heat has to be added to the water to raise its temperature from 20° C to the boiling point 100° C. • Heat has to be added to vaporize all of the water that is at 100° C.
Phase Change Example • Heat has to be added to raise the temperature of all of the steam from 100° C to 110° C. • Total heat energy: Q = 167440 J + 1130000 J + 10050 J = 1307490 J
Final Temperature Example • A 0.3 kg piece of ice at 0° C is placed in 1 kg of water at 40° C in an insulated container. If no heat is lost to the container, what is the final temperature of the water? • Q lost water = Q gained ice + Q gained ice water • (m·c·DT)water = m·Lf + (m·c·DT)ice water
