In this animated object, learners examine the chemistry behind table salt.
The Effect of Temperature on the Vapor Pressure of a Liquid
By Debbie McClinton, Dr. Miriam Douglass, Dr. Martin McClinton
Learners examine how vapor pressure is calculated. The vapor pressure of a liquid increases with increasing temperature. If the heat of vaporization and the vapor pressure at one temperature are known, the vapor pressure at a second temperature can be calculated.
Heat of Fusion and Heat of Vaporization
Learners examine graphs and read that the heat of fusion is the heat energy absorbed by one mole of solid as it is converted to liquid, while the heat of vaporization is the heat energy absorbed by one mole of liquid as it is converted to gas.
Learners examine how melting, vaporization, and sublimation require energy input while freezing and condensation release energy.
Melting Point and Freezing Point
Learners observe that the melting of a solid and the freezing of its liquid occur at the same temperature. The melting point is an intrinsic property and is used to identify a substance.
