- Calculate the variation of latent heat of fusion of ice with temperature from the following data:
Specific heat of water at 0°C = 1
Specific heat of ice at 0°C = 0.505
- At normal pressure, melting point of mercury is −39°C. Its density in solid state is 14.19 gm/cc and at liquid state 13.59 gm/cc and the latent heat of fusion is 2.33 cal/gm. Calculate the melting point of mercury at 1,000 atm.
Ans. 241.6 K
