Inserir no projetoP3020911Determinação da entalpia de fusão de uma substância pura com Cobra3


When a solid melts, energy is required for the destruction of the crystal lattice. A substance whose melting point lies slightly below room temperature is first cooled until it solidifies and then melted in a calorimeter. The melting enthalpy is calculated from the decrease in temperature due to the melting process which is measured in the calorimeter.


  1. Take a temperature-time-diagram for the melting process of dioxan.
  2. Calculate the melting enthalpy and entropy of 1,4-dioxan.
