Cooling and Change of State



This module offers activities related to the phenomenon of substances changing their state from liquid to solid during cooling. There are four types of activities:

  • Data logging: a laboratory experiment to observe and measure the change of temperature of a liquid as it cools into the solid state. The temperature recording may also be synchronized with video capture.
  • Simulation: a visual aid to assist an interpretation of the phenomenon of change of state in terms of a kinetic theory of particles.
  • Modelling: a mathematical model to predict changes of temperature in a liquid when it is hotter than its surroundings.
  • Photo record: a photo record of the laboratory experiment on change of state to help link observations to temperature measurements and a theory for explaining the phenomenon.
